Ethnography curators Diane Dittemore and Andrew Higgins will share baskets from the extensive Arizona State Museum collection. Since the Museum presently does not have display space for these materials this is a rare chance to see some of these items. Materials and technology of this craft will be a focus of the talk. The tour will be held in the Pottery Gallery area and does not involve walking. We will meet at 10 am and the program will last about 2 hours. To register contact Katherine Cerino.
