Yesterday & Today: The Symposium - Reconnecting the Artist with the Art offers insights into one of California’s oldest art traditions, basket weaving. The two day symposium explores the challenges of identifying early California Indian basketweavers whose names were not recorded at the time their art was collected by museums and others.
Key presenters include California Indian Basketweavers’ Association (CIBA) Board Chairman and Master Weaver Clint McKay Dry Creek Pomo/Wappo/Wintun and Jan Timbrook, Ph D, Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History.
Topics will include how to buy a basket to art in the lives of California Indians and more. Attendees will also conduct a “study tour” at the Art of the Americas Show California Indian Basketry booth to meet contemporary weavers and look at historic baskets.
