"Southwest Weaving: The Spanish Tradition" was an exhibition of textiles woven by Spanish immigrants of the American Southwest. Of the 23 textiles displayed, all but two were created by Spanish settlers during the 19th century. The others were done by Navajo servants working for Spanish families. The most commonly produced example of their craft was the Rio Grande blanket. In addition, a Saltillo sarape, floral colcha embroideries and floor coverings called jergas were on view. The exhibition was organized by the Museum of International Folk Art, a division of the Museum of New Mexico, and was on view in the Akeley Gallery of the American Museum of Natural History from December 14, 1979 to February 26, 1980. The show then travelled to the Joslyn Art Museum, Omaha, Nebraska and the Art Institute of Chicago.
