Eiteljorg Museum Indian Market Includes Northwest Native Art

The Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis will feature some Northwest Native art at its annual Eiteljorg Indian Market again this year June 24-25. Last year, Tsimshian artist David Robert Boxley was a multiple winner at the event winning the 2005 Purchase Award for a drum set as well as 1st and 3rd place ribbons for his other Northwest Native art. He will attend this event again this summer. This is good news for Northwest Native art since this style of aboriginal art has been so regionalized in the Pacific Northwest with minimal exposure elsewhere. It will be a much need exposure for Northwest Native art in the midwest and hopefully a new market will soon develop starting with the visitors to the Eiteljorg Indian Market as well as the Eiteljorg Museum itself which is renowned for its exhibitions of American Indian and western art.

For contemporary Northwest Native art, see Free Spirit Gallery.
