2020 Native Treasures
Native Treasures Online Auction has now closed. See you is 2021!
Native Treasures is traditionally held on Memorial Day Weekend at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center. The 2020 art market was cancelled due to the current public health crisis. This much-anticipated invitational Native American art market typically features nearly 200 prominent artists who offer stunning hand-made jewelry, pottery, sculpture, two-dimensional art, fashion, carvings, basketry, bead-work and textiles.
This year’s Native Treasures will take form of an online art auction that will be held from June 19 to 28, 2020. 150 works of art by 50 Native artists will be featured in the auction. Native Treasures supports Native American artists and their communities while also benefiting the exhibitions and education programs at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture. Auction proceeds will be split 50/50 between participating artists and the museum.

Kathleen Wall (Jemez Pueblo) will serve as the MIAC Living Treasure artist for 2020-2021. While Wall began her artistic journey making storytellers, she knew all along in her heart that she would transcend the traditional art that she was taught. During her late teens, Wall’s works began to take on more figurative qualities. The artist contends that she was “a young girl in the midst of something I had a passion for.”
Thank you for your wonderful support of the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture (MIAC).
