American Indian Arts Marketplace
June 8 & 9, 2024
We look forward to welcoming you in June to celebrate contemporary and traditional Native art forms at the Autry Museum of the American West’s 33nd annual American Indian Arts Marketplace, where you can purchase one-of-a-kind artwork, jewelry, and fashion on the grounds of the Autry Museum, and attend live theatrical performances from Native Voices, the Autry’s resident theatre company.
EXPLORE THE MUSEUM
Admission to the museum is included with the ticket price, where you will find works on display that explore the visual diversity and excellence of Native American arts including pieces from California Native artists Rick Bartow (Wiyot), Gerald Clarke Jr. (Cahuilla Band of Indians), Harry Fonseca (Nisenan Maidu), River Garza (Tongva), Leah Mata Fragua (yak tityu yak tithini Northern Chumash), Cara Romero (Chemehuevi) and Fritz Scholder (Luiseño). See these and other works, contemporary and traditional, by Native artists from across the country, integrated throughout our galleries.
FAMILY PLAY SPACE
Drop by the Family Play Space in the museum lobby for hands on learning and be inspired to wonder, wander, and explore the many histories, cultural traditions, and magnificent landscapes of the American West!
Why the change in seasons?
Given that brush and forest fires have impacted the last two Marketplaces, there is no denying the impact climate change—and the extended fire season that is now autumn in Southern California—have had on this festival. Shifting this event to late spring will allow the festival to continue to grow and thrive, in a season and weather better suited for everyone’s comfort and enjoyment.
