Conversations with a Curator
Hidden Treasures - The Largest Chumash Basket Ever Found

Members-Only Event

Thursday, March 15
5:30-7:00 PM
at the Museum

Join us as we dig deep into the discovery, excavation, and curation of the 200 year-old Cuyama Chumash basket found in 2015 in a remote area of Santa Barbara's backcountry. Hear from our Museum Anthropologists how using advanced technology has allowed them to preserve the basket's unique characteristics so generations can view it, learn from it, and enjoy its history as one of our "newest" additions to our Chumash Hall collections. Enjoy beer, wine, and light appetizers.

Participating Curators:
John R. Johnson, Ph.D., Curator of Anthropology
Jan Timbrook, Ph.D., Curator of Ethnography
