Attention, Arts and Crafts Enthusiasts: NMAI’s Native Art Market Is Back This Weekend

Lovers of art, craftsmanship and all things creative: make your way down to Bowling Green on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. for the National Museum of the American Indian’s (NMAI) annual Native Art Market. The market will feature traditional and contemporary artworks by award-winning Indigenous artists from across the Americas, with mediums including jewelry, paintings, photography, pottery and sculpture. Attendees will also get to enjoy live acoustic guitar by Jesse Alan Horn (Potawatomi) and DJ Jonray (Laguna/Acoma Pueblo).

The market is free to enter and will be set up in the rotunda on the museum’s main floor. In addition to purchasing beautiful handmade creations (gift-buying procrastinators, take note!), you’ll also have the opportunity to learn about Indigenous art and creativity at the museum, which is free and open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
