The world’s most knowledgeable experts in American Indian art come together to discuss and present thousands of historic art objects from indigenous cultures across North America.

The Antique American Indian Art Show Santa Fe, the largest show of historic American Indian art in the world, returns August 16–19, 2016, bringing together nearly 70 of the world’s most knowledgeable experts in American Indian art and thousands of select historic art objects from indigenous cultures throughout North America.

The four-day event will take place Tuesday through Friday at El Museo Cultural de Santa Fe in the Santa Fe Railyard. The festivities kick off on Tuesday evening, August 16, with an opening gala from 6 to 9 pm to benefit New Mexico PBS. The show runs from 11 am to 5 pm, Wednesday through Friday, August 17–19, 2016.

The flagship show in the United States dedicated to pre-1950 American Indian art, the line-up provides an eye-dazzling education in North American Indian art history learned through the lens of original handmade objects that reflect and express the daily life and culture of Native peoples. From textiles and pottery to jewelry, basketry, beadwork, woodcarving and more, the show highlights the artistry, imagination, and tribal traditions of historic, largely unknown American Indian artisans and the beauty, inspiration, and material resources of the Native landscape.

Admission includes a special viewing of Woven in Beauty: 100 Years of Navajo Master Weavers from the Toadlena/Two Grey Hills Region, a curated exhibition that explores historic textile traditions from the northwestern New Mexico region of the Navajo reservation. The exhibition, held in partnership with El Museo Cultural, will be on view throughout the run of the show.
