About the Southwest Indian Art Fair: 

The Southwest Indian Art Fair began in 1993 as a small pottery fair. Since then, it has grown to be the highlight of Arizona State Museum’s annual educational and cultural celebrations, as well as a highly anticipated feature of Tucson’s winter festival calendar. SWIAF, like all the museum’s events, promotes respect for and understanding of the region’s vibrant and diverse Native cultures. Your support of this event helps us support Native artists. We thank you!
