If you haven't yet attended the Avenir Museum's exhibit of textiles created by the master weavers of the Navajo and Hopi tribes, you will truly be missing out on something amazing. Stop by the Avenir Museum of Design and Merchandising in the University Center of the Arts by closing time on Friday, Jan. 22 to see these beautiful displays of woven art.
Woven to Wear: Navajo and Hopi Textiles from The Durango Collection® pays homage to the creativity and skill of Navajo and Hopi weavers. The exhibit includes wearable, woven items from the Navajo and Hopi tribes.
Mantas of the Hopi parallel the introduction of cotton to the Southwest. Mantas were knee-length cotton dresses that Hopi women wore and wear today.
Navajo textiles reflect the Diné (the Navajo name for “the People”) concept of harmony.
Admission to the exhibit is free.
The Avenir Museum of Design and Merchandising hours are 11 a.m. - 6 p.m.
