The Kentucky Museum is partnering with the National Basketry Organization to host an international exhibition, Basketry Now: 10th Anniversary Exhibition. This exhibit opens July 16. The National Basketry Organization has assembled this show of contemporary and traditional basketry with artists employing a variety of both common and uncommon techniques in a wide array of materials. Juror Heather Lineberry selected 84 works of art by 55 artists, including those from the Netherlands, the UK, New Zealand, and Canada.
