This is the final week to view two exhibitions at the Art Museum. Brian Dickerson: Constructed Paintings and Drawings and Woven Traditions: Native American Basketry of the Southwest will be on view through Saturday, April 21.

Dickerson explores the idea of remembered landscapes through minimal, three-dimensional paintings on wood. The heavily layered and reworked surfaces contain hidden forms that suggest deep emotional meaning and a sense of mystery.

Woven Traditions: Native American Basketry of the Southwest, features the Art Museum's collection of baskets made by the Navajo, Hopi and Tohono O'odham tribes. The baskets depict elaborate, traditional and contemporary designs, including turtles, spiders, butterflies and kachinas.

The Art Museum is open 10 am to 5 pm, Monday - Saturday with extended hours on Monday evenings until 9 pm. Admission is free. For more information on exhibitions, please call 307.766.6622 or visit our website.
