Phase 3 of the Arizona State Museum Basket Collection Space project to reconfigure existing exhibit space in Room 102 to create the Arnold and Doris Roland Basketry Gallery. The Gallery project will provide much needed public access, display, education and interpretive space for the Arizona State Museum's Basket Collection, recipient of the Save America's Treasures Award.
The State Museum seeks enhanced exhibit display performance criteria and a new design approach to better meet the museum's functional and budgetary requirements.
Construction is nearing completion. The six-week off-gassing period for new finish materials is in progress. Off-gassing is required before ancient baskets can be exhibited in their new environment.
Fabrication of the backgrounds for the basketry exhibits and related interpretive signage inside the new casework is nearing completion. Exhibits will then be placed and enclosed in glass.
