InterweaveThe exhibit isn't large in volume and may take but a short 10-25 minutes to view depending on your speed, but it's very unique and worth checking out. From the brochure:
"Whether beginning with traditional methods and materials of basket-weaving, or originating in concepts for which a basket-maker determines the most appropriate materials, the variety in Interweave demonstrates this is a living tradition that has, since the 1970's, experienced a revival by crafts-people-turned-artists and has lead to new forms of self-expression."Here are a couple of pieces at the exhibit.
