The Southwest Indian Art Fair (SWIAF), southern Arizona’s premier Indian art show and market will take place Feb. 22 & 23, 2014, on the expansive front lawn of Arizona State Museum on the University of Arizona campus in Tucson, Arizona.

SWIAF is a wonderful weekend of art, culture, performance, and food on Arizona State Museum's front lawn, rain or shine. Meet 200+ Native artists, many of them award winning. Talk with them about their work and learn about the cultural significance that informs, inspires, and imbues their work.

Shop an array of top-quality, handmade art including pottery, katsina dolls, paintings, jewelry, baskets, rugs, blankets, and much more. Artist demonstrations, food, music, and dance performances round out the two-day celebration.

The Southwest Indian Art Fair brings together a cross-section of cultural traditions in performances, music, dance, and demonstrations in many media. Living cultural practices, coupled with meaningful conversations with the artists, provide context for understanding the artwork.

Music and Dance Performances

Raffle of objects donated by the artists

Benefit Sale—hosted by the Friends of the ASM Collections—of a wide range of Native collectibles

Parking is free in the Tyndall & Main Gate Garages.
