There are only two weeks left to experience Rooted, Revived, Reinvented: Basketry in America. Organized by the National Basketry Organization and The University of Missouri – Columbia, this is the only time the exhibit will be on display in the Mid-Atlantic region. Don’t miss your chance to explore the history of American basketry before it moves on to its final destinations!

Come and examine contemporary American basketry’s roots in Native America, Europe and Africa, the multiple ways historical traditions continue to evolve in the 21st century, and the ways contemporary artists employ and translate basketry origins and techniques into sculptural, textile and installation art. Exhibition ends on April 28.
