Come see beautifully handwoven, one of a kind Navajo rugs and more at the Pueblo Grande Museum Auxiliary 14th Annual Navajo Rug and American Indian Art Auction on Saturday, November 2. Preview the rugs and art available for bidding beginning at 11 a.m., and have your favorites already chosen for the auction beginning at noon. This annual auction is not only a great way to pick up some authentic works of American Indian art, but it is also a fundraiser! A portion of the proceeds benefit the Pueblo Grande Museum Auxiliary, which helps support the museums’ preservation efforts, education programs, special events, exhibits, and artifact collections care.
The auction provides a wonderful opportunity to see numerous styles of Navajo rugs and a variety of types of American Indian art from all over the Southwest. Trader Bruce Burnham will also share his knowledge with attendees about collecting Navajo rugs and American Indian art during an informal chat before the auction. Burnham is a dedicated and knowledgeable resource for learning how to appreciate and collect American Indian art, whose family has been trading with the native peoples of the Four Corners area for five generations.
The auction is free and open to the public. The Museum will be open 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. with standard admission rates for visitors, and free for Museum Members. For more information on this and other upcoming Auxiliary events, visit pueblogrande.org or call (602) 495-0901.
