Woven Worlds: Basketry from the Clark Field Collection:
"Woven Worlds: Basketry from the Clark Field Collection" is on display March 11-May 20, 2001 at The Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  This landmark exhibition explores the cultural and geographic diversity among Native Americans with over 250 baskets selected from Philbrook's world-renowned Clark Field Collection. These baskets, remarkable for their quality and breadth, honor tribal groups from the United States, Canada and northern Mexico, and weave together the inter-relationship between the artists and the collector, Clark Field.  This site gives a description of this exhibit and of Clark Field.

Phoebe Hearst Museum of Anthropology:
The first entry in the catalogue of the museum's California collections is a cradle basket, which was acquired in 1901 under the auspices of Phoebe Apperson Hearst, the museum's founder. Between 1901 and 1996, the museum gathered a research collection of approximately 9,000 California Indian baskets. With specimens from every tribe in California, and examples representing every technique used in basket weaving, the collection is a unique resource.

Marion Steinbach Indian Basket Museum:
