Rooted, Revived Reinvented: Basketry in America

January 28-May 14, 2017

This exhibition visually chronicles the history of American basketry from its origins in Native American, European, and African traditions to its contemporary presence in the fine ar and craft worlds. The baskets convey meaning and interpret American life through the artists' choices of materials; the techniques and forms they select; and the colors, designs, patterns, and textures they employ.
