Since 2013, NHMU has hosted an annual Indian Art Market that attracts some of the country’s most talented Native American artists to Salt Lake City. More than 25 tribes have been represented over the years, bringing with them a diversity of traditional and contemporary Native American art that is available for purchase. Visitors can shop one-of-a-kind jewelry, pottery, sculptures, paintings, beadwork, weavings, and much more; all while learning about tribal traditions from the artists working to preserve them.
Given the challenges COVID-19, this year’s Indian Art Market will be held online. Sadly, that means we cannot host the spectacle of the market in the Museum’s Canyon. Instead, we are presenting artists' submitted work on our website throughout the month of October and putting you directly in touch with them to purchase.
Follow the links below to shop by artist or medium and when you find a piece that speaks to you, contact the artist directly via the information provided.* One hundred percent of sales from NHMU's Indian Art Market go directly to the artists.
