Best of Show Award

We are delighted to announce that Howard R. & Joy M. Berlin and Kristine & Leland W. Peterson are sponsoring the Best of Show Award at $10,000. We were able to increase the Best of Show Award from $4,500 to $10,000 in 2018 because of the generous support of the Berlins and Petersons. The renewal of this gift enables the Heard Museum Guild Indian Fair & Market and its Juried Competition to continue attracting the best Native American artists and their creative and technically excellent art. Peterson is Treasurer of the Heard Museum Board of Trustees and Berlin is a Life Trustee of the Heard Museum. The Guild thanks the Berlins and Petersons for their generous support of the Indian Fair & Market and our outstanding artists.

The Heard Indian Fair & Market is a long-standing, nationally recognized event. It is the largest art market in Arizona. Furthermore, it is the second largest market of its kind in the country. Participants include more than 600 Native artists from 116 tribal affiliations in the U.S. and Canada. A variety of traditional and cutting-edge media dazzle visitors each year. Also noteworthy are live performances on two stages, storytelling and crafts, book signings, artists' demonstrations and featured artists. Held the first weekend of March, the Fair attracts over 15,000 guests. The event has become a gathering place for art lovers and the community to celebrate and learn about Native arts and cultures.
