The Natural History Museum of Utah is set to celebrate their fourth year of their Indian Art Market. Featuring over 20 native artists, the market is an opportunity to buy original jewelry, beadwork, sculpture, and paintings. The yearly event is an opportunity for local artists to showcase their work, while participating in a juried show. The Indian Art Market and associated programs are free and open to the public and runs Saturday, October 8 – 9 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Live performances on the flute and drums will accompany shoppers as they meet artists and learn about contemporary Indian culture before purchasing a piece of original Indian art. A panel of experts with backgrounds in native history, art, anthropology and more will hand out several awards including Best of Show.
The Natural History Museum of Utah features many events for the community to become involved in local culture and history. It is located at 301 Wakara Way near the mouth of Red Butte Canyon in Salt Lake City.
