Weaving a Revolution:
a celebration of contemporary Navajo baskets
This special exhibition, developed by the Natural History Museum of Utah, showcases 150 contemporary Navajo baskets and tells the story of the people who made them and created a new art form in the process.
These baskets were made over a 30-year period by weavers from five families living in Navajo lands within Utah. The exhibit vividly portrays the way a group of traditional weavers, a young designer using computer graphics, and a family of trading post proprieters came together to create dramatic, bold, and colorful Navajo baskets.
