Musqueam and the Museum of Anthropology invite you to celebrate the opening of The Fabric of Our Land, an exhibit that will take you on a journey of over 200 years of Salish weaving.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see some of the earliest Salish hand-woven blankets in existence. On loan from museums in Europe and the United States, these stunning weavings will give visitors an up-close view of rare Salish designs that we hope inspire you to learn more about the rich histories of this cultural practice.
This exhibit seeks to support contemporary weavers engaged in the ongoing revitalization of Salish weaving. Throughout the duration of the exhibit, visitors will have opportunities to experience weaving by trying it themselves. This exhibit will be on view in MOA’s Audain Gallery from November 19 2017 to April 15 2018.
$2 PARKING: Use coupon code FABRIC at the pay station from 12 p.m. onward.
