Now in its fifth year, it is the largest show of its kind in the world. Set in Santa Fe, the Southwest heartland of American Indian art and culture, the Antique American Indian Art Show follows the city’s centuries-old tradition of trade in Native art, offering authentic, original, high-quality examples by Southwestern pueblos and tribes. At the same time, the show reaches far beyond the Southwest to represent the cultural and geographical diversity of indigenous peoples throughout the U.S. and Canada. From the Navajo Nation to the Great Plains to the Eastern Woodlands and Northwest Coast, the show’s selection of indigenous artworks is unparalleled. 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 14, with an opening party from 6 to 9 PM to benefit KNME New Mexico PBS. The show continues from 11 a.m. to 5 PM. Wednesday through Friday, August 15-17. Admission includes a special viewing of Germantown Weaving: First Modern Art -1870-1900. A stunning group of Navajo Germantown weavings, this extraordinary collection is one of the largest and rarest in the world.
