Traveling state exhibit features Indian textiles

AUGUSTA – The Maine State Museum will have a traveling exhibition on American Indian textiles from Maine and surrounding regions. The exhibit was made possible from a grant for $7,500 from the Maine Community Foundation in Ellsworth.

The exhibit will include about 100 artifacts, ranging in age from prehistoric to early 20th century.

It will open in 2003 at the Maine State Museum, then move to New Brunswick and the Nova Scotia Provincial Museum, with possible additional venues.

The grant will also fund two planning conferences in October 2001 and March 2002.
