Heard Museum Phoenix, Color Riot! How Color Changed Navajo Textiles. Through September 29, 2019
“Navajo weavers’ individualism and flair for experimentation is vividly expressed in textiles from the last quarter of the 19th century. The textiles are rooted in ideas and events the weavers experienced between 1863 and 1868. During this time of great change, as the Navajo rebuilt their flocks and repaired the devastation of Bosque Redondo, weavers had an unprecedented freedom to experiment.” https://heard.org/exhibits/color-riot/
