2024 IAIA Annual Benefit & Auction—Scholarships Shape Futures

On August 14, 2024, Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) leadership, alum artists, supporters, and friends will gather at La Fonda on the Plaza in Santa Fe, New Mexico, for an evening of art, entertainment, and fundraising to provide essential scholarship support for IAIA students. The event will feature a silent/online auction on La Fonda’s La Terraza, a live auction of one-of-a-kind works by contemporary Indigenous artists, and a live paddle call. Those who cannot attend in person can participate in the online and live auctions through remote bidding. Online and live auction art will be on display prior to the event at the Auction Art Preview at the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts (MoCNA) from July 25–August 12. Whether you participate in person or remotely, your support is an investment in college access and success for the next generation of Indigenous artists and leaders.
