2021 IAIA Recent Graduate Art Market

Jul 15, 2021

MoCNA is pleased to announce the annual IAIA Recent Graduate Art Market will be held on August 21–22, under the museum’s portal, from 7 am–5 pm daily. Twenty IAIA graduates within the last six years, 2016 to 2021, will be showing work in this year’s Art Market. Some artists have participated in previous years, and others will be showing their work in the market for the first time, allowing visitors to see the diversity of IAIA’s community. This year, proceeds from booth fees will be donated to the Academy for Technology and the Classics’ (ATC) Native American Club. Students in the ATC Club expand their education and understanding about Native American cultures and create a space for Native American students to gather, share ideas, and discuss common interests and concerns.
