American Indian Student Art Show & Sale

Drawing student artists from across the United States, the Heard Museum Guild American Indian Student Art Show & Sale, in the Heard’s Monte Vista Room, offers the opportunity to purchase unique treasures by tomorrow’s master artists. Admission is free; museum admission additional.

One of the few national events celebrating the achievements of young Native artists, the Student Art Show & Sale at the Heard Museum offers an incomparable selection of artwork for viewing and purchase. Visitors can peruse more than 400 works of art by students in grades 7 to 12 on display and for sale. The show features a vast array of traditional and fine art – katsina dolls, pottery, baskets, jewelry, beadwork, weavings, paintings and sculpture – as well as unique contemporary pieces in creative media.

A panel of esteemed judges chooses outstanding pieces in a juried competition, and winners receive cash prizes and ribbons. The students price their own artwork and receive the proceeds from the sale of their work. Money for scholarships and school art program grants are raised through the sale of student art note cards, which feature artwork by students and are available at the Heard Museum Shops.

Since 1992, this annual event has returned more than $300,000 to students from the sale of their artwork and more than $100,000 in scholarships and grants to participating students’ art teachers.
