One Trader’s Legacy: Steve Getzwiller Collects the West

Exhibition Website

Nov 18 2017 - Sep 29 2019

Steve Getzwiller, cowboy, collector, and Indian trader-

Steve started his lifelong passion for collecting the west and Native American artifacts nearly 50 years ago, beginning as a teenager with his exposure to the Amerind Museum and mentor Charles C. Di Peso. A natural trader, he has become known for his work with weavers from the Navajo Nation. While Getzwiller has collaborated with multiple museums to present exhibitions of historic and contemporary weavings, One Trader’s Legacy marks the first time that Getzwiller’s personal collection of rugs, paintings, pottery, baskets, and guns will be on public view.
