IAIA 2018 Scholarship Dinner and Auction

IAIA continues its tradition to celebrate student imagination and achievement in the arts as we look toward hosting our most important fundraiser. Surrounded by superb Native art open to your bidding, you are invited to enjoy the rooftop reception and mingle with IAIA alumni, students, and faculty.

80% of our students are in need of financial assistance to stay enrolled in their chosen academic programs. This event helps support our next generation of students, enabling them to achieve their dream of a college education. Join us in helping our students graduate debt-free—maybe the greatest gift of a lifetime!

Sponsorship and Tickets

IAIA is excited to offer guests reserved seating for the event. You can choose your own table when you select your sponsorship level. Follow the prompts on the SimpleTix web page—after you make the table or ticket purchase, your event tickets will be emailed to you. For questions about the sponsorship table and ticket purchasing process, please call Advancement Office Coordinator Sandra Narvaez at (505) 424-5730 during business hours.
