Treasures of the Southwest
Historical photographs from the region complement the textiles on exhibit and offer visitors insight into the lives and artistic traditions of the weavers. By rotating selections from the collections annually, the Center will provide the public with the opportunity to see more of its collections in the Treasures exhibition.
In 2017, the Center of Southwest Studies was awarded a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation’s American Art Program to support the permanent installation of a selection of Southwestern textiles from The Durango Collection® in the Treasures of the Southwest exhibition.
For the first time in its history, the Center is dedicating a portion of its gallery space to both Ben Nighthorse Campbell and the Treasures exhibits to permanently display these collections.
