American Indian Arts Marketplace

About the Event

Please note that the 2020 American Indian Arts Marketplace will be transformed into a digital experience. Please read statement from Autry President & CEO W. Richard West, Jr. (Southern Cheyenne) here. Stay tuned to this page for more updates. 
 
The largest Native American arts fair in Southern California, the Autry’s American Indian Arts Marketplace features 200 artists from more than 40 Native nations. Buy sculpture, pottery, beadwork, basketry, photography, paintings, jewelry, textiles, wooden carvings, mixed-media works, and more from top Native artists.
 

This year necessity will be the mother of innovation as we work towards The Autry Marketplace Online, a unique digital opportunity. We want you to know that as Marketplace Artists you are the community we want to keep at the forefront of our minds. We are currently busy listening to the needs and wants of our community. In the upcoming weeks, we expect to communicate additional details. We are all personally excited for the potential of a digital market to extend the mission and reach of the Autry’s Marketplace beyond our physical location.

Autry Marketplace Live!

On Saturday November 14, The Autry will host a one-day digital engagement through the platform, Hopin. Hopin is the first all-in-one live online events platform where attendees can learn, interact, and connect. Hopin’s live video platform makes online events more personal and engaging.

We will utilize Hopin’s Expo area to host live digital booths where eventgoers can “walk around” to visit the booths that interest them, directly engage with eventgoers, and take action. Each booth can contain live video, branded content, Twitter links, and pre-recorded videos.

Britt Campbell will reach out to schedule a run-through ensuring technical requirements are met for the day of the event.

If you have additional questions regarding Autry Marketplace Live! please email bcampbell@theautry.org

In addition to these elements, the Autry American Indian Arts Marketplace Online will feature talks with leading Native Americans in the arts, online theatre performances by Native Voices at the Autry, film screenings and digital interaction with the exhibition When I Remember I See Red: American Indian Art and Activism in California.

Nothing can replace the being together in person, we hope we are all able to gather again soon. Until that time, we look forward to seeing you in the virtual sphere!
