Heard Museum receives major Navajo textile collection

Phoenix, Arizona (ICC)

The Heard Museum of Native Cultures and Arts has been given another significant gift with the donation of the Santa Fe Collection of Navajo Rugs from Dr. Charles and Linda Rimmer of Amarillo, Texas. The 77 Navajo textiles, created in the late 20th century, represent many styles handwoven by some of the most accomplished Navajo weavers. The collection features textiles from renowned artists such as Barbara Teller Ornelas, Ella Rose Perry, Larry Yazzie and Jason Harvey.

“We deeply appreciate the gift of the Santa Fe Collection of Dr. Charles and Linda Rimmer,” says Dr. Letitia Chambers, president and CEO of the Heard Museum. “The Rimmers’ collection of late 20th-century Navajo textiles approaches the size and quality of only two other major textile collections given to the Heard Museum in its 80-plus year history: the Fred Harvey Company collection of 19th-century textiles and the Read Mullan Collection of mid-20th century textiles. This donation completes the story of Navajo textiles to recent times and will prove invaluable to scholars and curators.”
