For Student Artists, Teachers, and Mentors

The 2020 Heard Museum Guild American Indian Student Art Show & Sale will be held March 27-30, 2020.

Here is the list of 2019 Award Winners.

We invite you to view this video of highlights from the 2018 Student Art Show & Sale.

Dear Artists, Teachers, and Mentors:

American Indian students in grades 7–12 are invited to submit their original artwork to the Student Art Show and Sale.  This event provides the opportunity for students to display their art in the Heard Museum, have their art judged by a professional panel, compete for ribbon and cash awards, and sell their artwork.

The pages in this section of our website contain information to assist you in preparing and submitting entries for the Show.  Notice the list of pages in the “Student & Teacher Quick Links” on the right side of this page. Please review the pages in their entirety.

Pay special attention to these issues:

  • Each piece of art must be reasonably priced by the student. This is a show & sale.  Students must be willing to sell their entries.
  • Size must be considered.  The panels on which we hang the art are about 30 inches wide.  Two-dimensional work must fit in this space.
  • All pieces will be available for sale until the Show closes March 30, 2020.
  • Teachers’ grant requests must be included with students’ art and must be clear and specific about what the requested funds will be used for.  Stating “art supplies” is not specific enough for grant requests.

There will be a special Master Class for participating Student Artists on Saturday, March 28, 2020.  Space is limited so register today. See the 2020 Schedule page for details.

The Members only Silent Auction and Sale begins at 5:30 pm in Monte Vista on Saturday, March 28, 2020.  We would like you to join us at the Museum on this important day and evening.  We will be happy to arrange free tours of the Museum for you on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. Please notify us a week in advance so we can arrange guides.
