The Autry National Center of the American West presents the 24th Annual American Indian Arts Marketplace this weekend at its Griffith Park campus. This signature event invites the public to meet and support extraordinary Native artists, who represent more than 40 tribes from across the nation. Drawing 5,000 guests annually, the American Indian Arts Marketplace is one of the most prestigious of a national circuit of Native American art shows that support Native artists. Items for sale include sculptures and pottery, beadwork and basketry, photography and paintings, jewelry and textiles, wooden carvings and mixed-media works.
The Marketplace presents two full days of art sales, cultural performances, movie screenings, beadwork workshops, and the 4th Annual Short Play Festival presented by Native Voices, the Autry’s acclaimed theatre company. Inside the museum, visit the Autry’s critically-acclaimed special exhibitions Floral Journey: Native North American Beadwork and Route 66: The Road and the Romance.
The American Indian Arts Marketplace is open 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. For more information and directions visit the Autry National Center website.
