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 Amerind.


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.
