Drop by our Testing, Testing 1-2-3 exhibit on Saturday, December 9, to see carvers, including Sven Haakanson, the Burke's curator of North American anthropology, produce new work inspired by carving practices of indigenous peoples of the Northwest Coast.

We'll have the doors open in the ethnology workroom so you can view the carving process, interact with carvers, and learn more about how they connect with the traditional knowledge held in carvings in the Burke's ethnology collection.

Members: Bring a friend!

Share the Burke with someone you love! Bring a guest and they'll get in for free.* Not a member? Join today!
*Limit one guest per membership. Offer valid only December 9, 2017.
