Celebrating the Pomo Fish Basket
Please note, this event has expired.
This special First Friday celebrates the installation of a commissioned Pomo Fish Basket sculpture in the Museum’s Wild Gardens by Dry Creek Pomo/Bodega Miwok artist Bruce Smith.
Smith will discuss the inspiration and process that went into making this six-foot long sculpture out of steel, intricately simulating traditional weaving techniques of Pomo basket makers. The sculpture is not only a beautiful work of art, but will be a key element in the Wild Gardens for teaching visitors about the importance of salmon habitat and the role of salmon in Pomo culture. Samples of a traditional Pomo salmon and seaweed dish will be available.
