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 Fulton-Hayden Memorial Art Gallery

 

The Fulton-Hayden Memorial Art Gallery was built in the mid-1950s to house the Fulton family’s art collection. Amerind’s founders Rose Hayden Fulton and William Shirley Fulton played an important part in collecting the fine art in Amerind’s permanent collection. Today the gallery features exhibits by contemporary indigenous artists and other contemporary artists of the American West, in addition to displaying works from the permanent collection. The current exhibitions are listed below with the most recently opened listed first:
