Rooted, Revived, Reinvented: Basketry in America

June 2- July 23, 2017

This traveling exhibition curated by Josephine Stealey and Kristin Schwain, chronicles a history of American basketry from its origins in Native American, immigrant, and slave communities to its presence within the contemporary fine art world. Through the selection of materials, colors, designs, patterns, and textures, artists featured in this exhibition tell different stories and cultural histories. Rooted in local landscapes, basketry has been shaped by cultural tradition but is now thriving in our contemporary world.
