An intriguing variety of baskets from 60 tribal groups and ranging from 800 years old to contemporary examples populate the pages of Valerie K. Verzuh’s new book Woven Identities: Basketry Art of Western North America (Museum of New Mexico Press). Verzuh is a curator at the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture, where she has worked for 13 years. The San Francisco native is also the author, with MIAC ethnology curator Antonio Chavarria, of Painting the Native World: Life, Land, and Animals and editor of A River Apart: The Pottery of Cochiti & Santo Domingo Pueblos.

The new book is a catalog of the exhibition Woven Identities, which is on display at MIAC through April 14, 2014. A walkthrough and book signing is scheduled from noon to 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 8, at the museum, 710 Camino Lejo, 505-476-1269. There is no charge for the event.
