An incredible basket in the main gallery!
An Amerind Treasure
Found in 1910 by a 10 year old boy in
southeast Arizona, close to the Mexican border, this basket
was recently donated to the Amerind by the family of local
historian Mary Magoffin (1927-2007). Although we will
probably never know for sure, we think this basket was made
by a Chiricahua Apache. You will find the basket and the
rest of the story in the main downstairs gallery of the
We are in the process of making changes
to the exhibit "Images in Time and Place" in the main
gallery of the Museum. We are putting up maps and
photographs to give more context to the cultural areas, and
changing some of the material items on display.
The ground floor galleries of the Fulton-Hayden Memorial Art
Gallery re-open after 30 years!
For the opening exhibition, Amerind teamed up with Friends
of Western Art (FWA) to put on
Artistic Visions of the West.
Volunteers from FWA and Amerind worked closely together,
selecting pieces from Amerind’s permanent collection and the
private collections of FWA’s many members. The result is an
engaging exhibit that explores the West through the eyes of
over 60 artists.
