Navajo, or Diné, are recognized as great masters of textile weaving. This exhibition will showcase some of the finest examples of their 19th-century child's blankets. It will explore the evolution of their blanket designs, from simple bands and stripes to more elaborate and complex patterns, and the historical context for how the Navajo (Diné) adapted their weaving through a changing world and oppressive conditions. Curator: Robert Parson. Reception: Sat, Sep 23, 5-7pm.
