tribal dancerLos Angeles-- Over 130 Native American Artists Gather for Intertribal Arts Marketplace, 4700 Western Heritage Way, Los Angeles, CA. autrynationalcenter.org


Meet, view the arts, and purchase hand-made products from over 100 Native American artists and artisans from across the country at the largest Native American marketplace in Southern California held each fall. Just around the time that people are doing their holiday shopping, an annual Intertribal Arts Marketplace celebrates the continuing traditions of thriving Native American cultures and their contributions to the arts. Weavers, woodcarvers, potters, jewelers, sculptors, painters and artisans showcase their creations sold to the public at this fantastic shopping event. 

 



Family-friendly, the event engages through live artist demonstrations, a Children’s Craft Village , Native food such as Piki bread and shopping for a wide range of Native arts just in time for the holidays. A Lakota Tipi will be on-display while performers of all ages will be on-hand. Dancers, singers, storytellers, and musicians share their knowledge and inspiration with the public.

Art collectors can browse the works of award-winning artists. Juried awards are given to the artisans in various categories such as beadwork, jewelry, painting, sculpture, pottery, and weaving. The work of art selected for the annual Jackie Autry Purchase Award will be acquired by the museum for its permanent collection. Purchase Award–winning objects from previous years will be on display inside the museum lobby, and visitors will be able to see each of the 2009 prize-winning entries on display at the individual artists’ booths.

Admission to the museum is included and features the opening of The Art of Native American Basketry: A Living Tradition. Many of the cultural consultants for this exhibition will be participating in the Intertribal Arts Marketplace. See the renown basketweavers’ contemporary baskets in the exhibition, meet them at their booths, and even purchase your own prized basket to take home.
