Native American and Alaska Native Artists Only Purchase Initiative

Calling all Native artists! The Art in Public Places Program at New Mexico Arts announces the 2019 Native American and Alaska Native Artists Only Purchase Initiative. The project is open to Native American or Alaska Native artists who reside in the United States as well as galleries in the U.S. who sell the work of Native Artists. Galleries may submit qualifications on behalf of any artist represented by the gallery, regardless of the artist’s residency, so long as the artist identifies as a member of a Native American or Alaska Native tribe or community. All media in all genres, suitable for interior or exterior display, will be considered for purchase and display at publicly accessible buildings throughout the State of New Mexico. Project amounts are $1,000 – $50,000 all-inclusive. Please check out the Call for Artists on Café. The deadline for submissions is January 24, 2020.
