April 3-July 12, 2003

Forty-one baskets are displayed along with materials, tools, and photographs of weavers, trading posts, Navajo-area landscapes, and Navajo homes. The exhibition explores Navajo basketry through the lens of hózhó, the essential aspect of the Navajo worldview. The creation, function, and design of Navajo baskets illuminate the concept of hózhó, a continual striving for balance, harmony, and beauty. The innate purpose and essence of a basket is to help maintain or regain hózhó. Examining the changes in the  material, subject matter,  and function of baskets  sheds light on the perpetual quest for balance and beauty.
