All artists accepted in the 2021 Heard Museum Guild Virtual Indian Fair and Market may enter the Juried Competition. While the 2021 Fair is a virtual art market, we plan to host a live juried competition along with a live and virtual Show & Sale on March 5-7. We are delighted that we already have pledges for over 90% of the $76,150 for awards. All artwork must be accompanied by the 2021 Juried Comp Entry Form.  Artists must comply with the 2021 Classifications and Divisions document and the 2021 Standards document.

Judges are invited from a wide variety of fields and have in-depth experience in judging artwork. Judges may include experienced American Indian artists, curators, gallery directors, educators, and collectors.
