Celebrating 30 Years of
Eiteljorg Indian Market & Festival
Open now – Aug. 14
Take a look back through 30 amazing years of Indian Market and Festival at the Eiteljorg with award winning artworks and photos from past markets.
In 1993, the Eiteljorg Museum began what is now known as Indian Market and Festival as a small art market with only 50 artists. As the market evolved, it took on the role of a festival to showcase performers, art demonstrators, food vendors, and more. Eiteljorg Indian Market and Festival has since grown to one of the top Indian art markets in the country as it has become a venue for local and regional community members to meet and support Native artists of the U.S. and Canada.
Participating artists have been juried and selected to sell jewelry, baskets, pottery, prints, paintings, sculpture, and many other art media. The works featured in this exhibition were purchased from former Indian Market award winners to enhance the collections of the Eiteljorg Museum. These additions contribute to our ability to further our mission — to inspire an appreciation and understanding of the arts, histories, and cultures of the American West and the Indigenous peoples of North America. Explore art from the collection and relive memories from past markets as the Eiteljorg prepares for its most exciting Indian Market yet!
