This event is full.
The Center for Craft is working in collaboration with members of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians (EBCI) to create a public art parklet to preserve and advance the important craft legacy of western North Carolina.
Located on the ancestral lands of the Anikituwahgi (now known as the Cherokee people) the design references Cherokee basketry in its form and function. Named "The Basket," this unique space in downtown Asheville promises to educate passers-by about Cherokee syllabary, traditions, and culture that still thrive today. The parklet will be installed directly in front of the Center’s 67 Broadway location in downtown Asheville, NC. Are you curious to see this parklet come to life?
Join ᎺᎵ ᏔᎻᏏᏂ, Mary Thompson, "The Basket" consulting artist and prolific EBCI basketmaker, and Marilyn Zapf, Curator at the Center for Craft, for an engaging and informative conversation about the future parklet, Cherokee basketmaking, and Thomspon's artistic practice.
