    Southwest+Indian+Art+Fair+hits+UA

    The front lawn of the Arizona State Museum held the 19th annual Southwest Indian Art Fair on Saturday and Sunday. The fair showcased artist demonstrations, food, dance and music performances, auctions and book signings.

    Since its beginnings as a small pottery fair in 1993, the Southwest Indian Art Fair has grown into one of the State Museum’s largest cultural celebrations.

    Demonstrations of Zapotec and Navajo weaving, Yaqui mask making and Navajo sand paintings were just a small part of the art offerings, which also included pottery, Hopi katsina dolls, paintings, jewelry, baskets, rugs and blankets. There were also Zuni and Apache dancers along with flute, guitar, drum and hoop dancing.

    A silent art auction and food such as Indian fry bread, rounded out the fair.
