2019 IAIA Scholarship Dinner and Auction

The Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) celebrates the birthplace of contemporary Native art by hosting the 2019 Scholarship Dinner and Auction that supports student scholarships through the much-anticipated annual fundraising event. Exceptional and collectable art is provided by IAIA students and alumni. One-of-a-kind pieces and experiences are offered to our guests.

Co-Chairs Keri Ataumbi (Kiowa) ’96 and Lorraine Gala Lewis (Laguna/Taos/Hopi) ’83, invite guests to meet IAIA students, alumni, faculty, and staff to enjoy the Southwest beauty of La Fonda on the Plaza.
