Featured Artist: 2016 Jackie Autry Purchase Award

This year’s Jackie Autry Purchase Award winner was Don Johnston (Qagan Tayagungin).

The American Indian Arts Marketplace celebrates the diversity of artistic traditions still practiced by Native artists throughout North America. Working in traditional and more recent mediums, gifted potters, sculptors, weavers, painters, jewelers, and carvers bring their works to the Griffith Park campus for sale to lovers of Native American art as well as curious newcomers. Many artists choose to enter their works in a juried competition, and each year one piece is selected for the Autry’s permanent collection.
