IAIA Annual Open House and Groundbreaking Ceremony
November 9, 2016, 2:00 pm–6:00 pm| Free
You are invited to explore the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) campus and programs during our annual open house. Learn more about our exciting opportunities, meet students, faculty, and staff.
The day’s events will feature a Groundbreaking Ceremony for the new IAIA Performing Arts and Fitness Building at 4:00 pm, hosted by KOAT’s Royale Dá, and will include several celebrity guests and speakers. Additionally, Honey Harris from 98.1 Radio Free Santa Fe will be on-site doing a live broadcast from 3:00-5:00 pm.
A wide variety of on-campus activities will take place, highlighted by a Bronze Pour—a sight not often seen by those outside of the art world—taking place at the Allan Houser Sculpture and Foundry Building on campus at 3:00 pm.
Visitors who take “selfie” photos at select locations, and post them to a social media site (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) will be included in a drawing for special prizes. More details will be available from the Welcome Desk at the Open House.
Free and open to the public. Light food and refreshments provided by Bon Appétit. Download and view the 2016 IAIA Open House Brochure.
