This issue's featured article: Envision, Collaborate, and Create: The Evolution of an Exhibition. Rooted, Revived, Reinvented: Basketry in America evolved from a unique partnership between the National Basketry Organization (NBO) and the University of Missouri Museum of Art and Archaeology (MAA). The project began in 2012, when Lois Russell, then NBO's president, and Jo Stealey, then chair of its Exhibitions Committee, casually considered a travelling show that would highlight American basketry. The outcome is an exhibition of over ninety baskets that opens at the University of Missouri in January, 2017, and will travel throughout the United States through 2019. The exhibition is enhanced and supported by an interactive website, a scholarly print catalog, and an iCatalog. It is a testament to the vision, enthusiasm, and collaboration of the curators and their graduate students as well as the support of artists, donors, funding organizations, University personnel, and Museum professionals.
