I am happy to share that over 150 Native artists have been juried into the 2023 show so far by MIAC staff. This years’ market will include some notable artists including fashion designers Orlando Dugi (Diné) and Penny Singer (Diné), 2D artists Zoe Urness (Tlingit) and Marla Allison (Laguna), potters Marcellus and Elizabeth Medina (Zuni) and Kathleen Wall (Jemez), jewelers Anthony Lovato (Kewa) and Maria Samora (Taos), and sculptors William Rogers (Diné) and Upton Ethelbah Jr. (Pueblo of Santa Clara & White Mountain Apache). – Just to name a few! Like last year, artists will keep 100% of their sales throughout the market.

Support from donors and partners is critical to our success – ensuring a high-quality event for visitors and artists alike. Supporters help to underwrite the expenses of breakfasts and lunches for artists, marketing and promotion, educational programs and performances, award honorariums, the Living Treasure exhibition at MIAC, and so much more. In exchange, sponsors receive tickets to the VIP party, Night Market, art market and so much more.
