"Native American Woven Arts” Exhibit Opening &

Donor Appreciation Party
Thursday, February 8, 2018
6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Weaving has always been an integral part of Native American cultures. From Chilkat blankets in the Northwest Coast to woven purses in the Woodlands, weaving is a varied and true art form.

Our new exhibit opening in February, “Native American Woven Arts,” appreciates the artistry and expertise of weaving unique and priceless baskets, bags, rugs, blankets, and clothing. The exhibit will explore the steps to create woven pieces from material gathering and preparation to final finishing.

Learn the stories and significance behind weaving designs from the voices of tribal members. Finally, meet the artists and their family businesses making textiles and basketry. Visitors will even be able to try their hand at weaving a rug or finishing a basket!
