Navajo Weaving: Tradition & Trade

Yah-nah-pah (1889-1913), rug, 1910, Stark Museum of Art

In Orange, the Stark Museum of Art explores the history of Navajo textiles in Navajo Weaving: Tradition & Trade.

The exhibition features more than 35 Navajo weavings, ranging from 19th-Century “Chief Blankets” to contemporary works by Navajo weavers. A replica Trading Post—where the Navajo historically bartered their weavings for goods—helps explain how culture and commerce influenced the weaving tradition. The exhibition runs through July 12.
