Indigenous Art Market

Stay tuned for details on the 2024 Indigenous Art Market, returning to NHMU in October. 

NHMU's annual Indigenous Art Market draws top Native American artists from around the country to the Museum in Salt Lake City where they show and sell fine jewelry, pottery, sculptures, carvings, kachinas, paintings, weavings, beadwork, sand paintings, and more. 

The market is included with museum admission, and all proceeds from sales stay with the artists. The market also features artist talks, dance performances, an ethnography collections showcase, and food vendors. 

About NHMU's Indigenous Art Market

Since 2013, NHMU has hosted an annual Indigenous 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 a wonderful 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 artists working to preserve them. Every year, 100 percent of sales from NHMU's Indigenous Art Market go directly to the artists. 

* NHMU/University of Utah (“NHMU”) are not responsible for any sales. All sales are negotiated directly with the artist, who is operating independently from NHMU.
