Presented by Toh-Atin Gallery of Durango, Colorado, NHMU will be hosting a sale of Navajo rugs of all sizes and design styles, handwoven by artists in the Four Corners region. The format is that of a silent auction, but every rug also has a "buy it now" price.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit the museum. A unique feature of this auction allows the first bidder to buy the rug immediately by paying 20% over the minimum bid.
Museum admission is not required to attend the Navajo Rug Sale. For more details visit: https://nhmu.utah.edu/navajo
