About the Event

Native basketry has long been viewed as a common craft, yet the artistic quality and value of these baskets are on par with fine art. Now Native peoples across the country are revitalizing basketry traditions, and the country looks to California as leaders in basketweaving. Drop in to learn more about this practice through The Art of Basketweaving, co-produced by the Autry and KCETLink Media Group and inspired by the California Continued exhibition. This hour-long documentary will play on a continuous loop throughout the day. 

The Art of Basketweaving is a KCETLink production in association with the Autry Museum of the American West.
