Eiteljorg At Home
We want to stay connected to you. Check this page often to see experiences that allow you to join our mission of exploring Native American and Western art, history and cultures – wherever you are.
Many of our Eiteljorg staffers have been working hard to create content that will make you feel like you’re at the museum, remember a favorite piece of art, learn how to play a new game, experience something you’ve never experienced before and ultimately escape for a moment each day. We’re here to lighten your load and brighten your spirits.

Attention quilters and #EJQuilts fans please consider helping our healthcare workers
Local hospitals report a dire shortage of face masks to protect nurses and doctors from the virus. They seek donations of face masks, and can accept homemade face masks. See this link: https://bit.ly/3dxYH6h. Do you have sewing skills and spare fabric from quilt projects? Would you consider sewing homemade face masks and donating them to your local hospitals? Sewing pattern is at this link: https://bit.ly/3dxx6CI.
Please do not bring donated masks to the Eiteljorg; the museum is not a collection point. Instead, please check your local hospital’s website to find out where to leave donations of masks. We would love to share photos of you sewing face masks. Please share your photos with #EJQuiltersHelpHealthcareHeroes.
