The Moab Museum is pleased to announce days of programming with master weaver, Roy Kady, from October 19-21, 2023, in conjunction with the current temporary exhibition on display at the Moab Museum, The People’s Tapestry: Weaving Tradition in Navajo Culture.

The People’s Textile: Weaving Tradition in Navajo Culture features nearly 100 stunning historic and contemporary textiles.
