Navajo Rug Sale at the Natural History Museum of Utah
April 6 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
NHMU will host a sale of Navajo rugs of all sizes and design styles, handwoven by artists in the Four Corners region, at a silent auction hosted with the Toh-Atin Gallery of Durango, Colorado.
While the format is that of a silent auction, every rug also has a “buy it now” price that allows the first bidder to buy the rug immediately by paying 20% over the minimum bid. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the museum.
- 10 a.m.–5 p.m. — The silent auction will take place at the Museum (last bids at 4 p.m.).
- 10 a.m.–12 p.m. — Guests are invited to bring their own rugs to the Museum for evaluation and restoration advice from Jackson Clark II, a third generation trader and owner of Toh-Atin Gallery.
- 2 p.m. — Walking tour and talk by Jackson Clark II
- All day — A trunk show of quality Native American jewelry will take place, offering authentic Native American jewelry at 20% off.
Museum admission is not required to attend the Navajo Rug Sale
