Washoe gourd project at museum

An exhibit of hand-painted Wahoe gourds coincides with the unveiling of the saloon exhibit Sunday at the Carson Valley Museum & Cultural Center.

The display is dedicated to the memory of Danny Wyatt and the Washoe Language Preservation Program. Painted by artist Charles Munroe each gourd represents one of the Washoe Tribal Elders and serves as tribute to Wyatt’s dedication to the preservation of the Washoe language.

The exhibit will open with an artist’s meet and greet followed by the serving of light refreshments. The event is open free to the public.
