Navajo Rug Auction

Saturday, April 26, 2014 - 10:00am - 4:00pm
The Natural History Museum of Utah, The Canyon

Presented by the Toh-Atin Gallery of Durango, Colorado, NHMU will be hosting a silent auction comprised of 100 different weavings, with pieces ranging in value from $100 to $20,000. A portion of the proceeds benefit the Museum. A unique feature of this auction allows the first bidder to buy the rug immediately by paying 20% over the minimum bid. 

Owners of Navajo rugs will have the opportunity to speak with Jackson Clark II, third-generation trader and owner of Toh-Atin Gallery, about their rugs and all visitors are invited to Jackson's "walking tour" and lecture through the auction rugs at 2pm.  Jackson is available between 10am - 12pm for rug evaluations and restoration advice.
