The first Heard Museum Indian Fair was held in May 1959 providing an opportunity for Native American artists to display and sell their work.
A long-standing nationally recognized event, the Fair is the second largest market of its kind in the country. Featuring more than 600 Native artists including well established and acclaimed talents along with a new and upcoming generation. Breath-taking works across a wide variety of traditional and cutting-edge media dazzle visitors each year.
Held the first weekend of March, the Fair attracts over 10,000 guests and has become a gathering place for art lovers and the community to celebrate and learn about Native art and culture.
We wish all the American Indian sculptors, whose work we have the privilege of casting, the very best!
