MIAC Collectors' Sale Artwork Drop-Off Day

Museum of Indian Arts & Culture

The Museum of Indian Arts and Culture is excited to announce the return of the Collectors' Sale, October 20-22, 2023. This sale traditionally has been an important fundraiser for the museum as well as a wonderful way to celebrate the collecting prowess of local donors and the community at large. The Collectors' Sale is a three-day event including a live auction, fixed-price sale, lectures from experts and demonstrations by artists. The Collectors' Sale will take place at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture (MIAC) in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

MIAC is asking for donations and consignments of Native artwork for this special fundraising event. Proceeds from the sale of the artwork will be donated to the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture to support their ongoing outreach efforts with tribal communities across the Southwest.
