Breaking Traditions, Saving Traditions:
Elsie Allen and the Legacy of Pomo Basketry

This remarkable collection of baskets and accompanying material will have resided at Santa Rosa Junior College for 20 years in 2023, yet it has never been exhibited in its entirety since arriving here.  For the collection’s 20th Anniversary at Santa Rosa Junior College, all the baskets will be on display, filling the museum, along with photographs, previously unseen videos, and stories of the weavers themselves.

Exhibit funded by the SRJC Foundation
