New exhibition: A Continuous Thread: Navajo Weaving Traditions opens Saturday, August 18, 2018.
The items on display are from the collection of Miss Margaret Cranford (1887-1974), a resident of Greenwich. At the age of 21, Miss Cranford began a lifelong pursuit of traveling across the United States and the world, collecting fine decorative art, jewelry, and textiles.
Between 1961 and 1974, Miss Cranford made numerous significant gifts of Native American material culture, primarily Navajo jewelry, basketry, pottery and textiles, to the Bruce Museum.
