Navajo Rug Auction
Come see an incredible display of 200 Navajo Rugs in the museum's free area, The Canyon. Presented by Toh-Atin Gallery of Durango, Colorado, NHMU will be hosting a silent auction of Navajo rugs of all sizes and design styles. The rugs will be ranging in age from a Third Phase Chiefs Blanket from around 1870 to contemporary rugs that will be finished the week of the auction! A portion of the proceeds will benefit our museum. A unique feature of this auction allows the first bidder to buy the rug immediately by paying 20% over the minimum bid.
Owners of Navajo rugs will have the opportunity to bring in their own rugs in and speak to Jackson Clark II, a third generation trader and owner of Toh-Atin Gallery, and his family about their rugs for evaluations and restoration advice. Jackson will also give a talk on Navajo rugs in our Community Room which is open to all visitors.
