Staff Reports | Digital Free Press

The Heard Museum is hosting the 65th annual Heard Museum Guild Indian Fair & Market on Saturday, March 4, and Sunday, March 5.

This beloved event is the largest art market in Arizona and one of the largest American Indian art markets in the world, Heard Museum representatives say.

“Every year, the Heard Museum Guild Indian Fair and Market connects over 15,000 visitors with more than 600 American Indian artists,” said David M. Roche, Dickey Family director and Heard Museum CEO. “Art lovers from around the world and local community members cross paths here to experience the creativity that comes to the Heard Museum.”

The Indian Fair and Market provides the opportunity to meet and purchase art directly from multiple generations of artists working in all forms of the visual arts. Cultural performances, dances, and demonstrations will also take place throughout the event, according to a press release.

Fair and market artists, both emerging and established, represent more than 100 American Indian and Alaska Native Tribes, and Canadian First Nations. They will show and sell artwork that includes jewelry, baskets, beadwork, quillwork, lapidary, paintings, drawings, photography, graphics, personal attire, pottery, pueblo carvings, sculpture, weaving and textiles, and other diverse artistic media, the release states.
