NHMU presents: Indigenous Art Market 2023

NHMU's annual Indigenous Art Market returns the weekend of October 14 and 15, 2023. Each year, the market draws top Native American artists from around the country, including numerous awardees, who show and sell fine jewelry, pottery, sculptures, carvings, kachinas, paintings, weavings, beadwork, sand paintings, and more. This year will be no exception, with confirmed artists including winners from Santa Fe and other renowned Native American markets. The market is included with Museum admission, and all proceeds from sales stay with the artists. View the event links below for detailed schedules for each day of the 2023 market, which will also feature artist talks, dance performances, a collections showcase, and food vendors. Admission is free for UofU staff, students, and faculty.

Allison Russell

Allison Russell KRCL Presents The Returner Tour Monday, November 13, 2023 DOORS 7 | MUSIC 8 ON SALE FRI 8/11 Facebook Event Print Email Google Outlook (.ics) The book I loved most as a child was The People Could Fly, Virginia Hamilton’s book of black folktales about not only escape, but the brilliance of life beyond whatever was left behind. The cover, a group of black folks in colorful headscarves and tattered but well- fitting suits, ascending beyond the clouds, into a sky that was blue, and tilting towards orange. It is what some would consider to be a children’s book, or a book suited for a child’s imagination. But the child’s imagination is not far from where we, grown folks in an ever-burning atmosphere, return to. Another escape, if you will. I believe Allison Russell to be a writer in many traditions, but I am now, upon sitting with the beauty of The Returner, considering Russell in the tradition of Virginia Hamilton. Hamilton, a black woman writer who understood the urgency of the times she was living in, and responded in an urgent fashion. Urgency, not in a sense of frantic output, or exhortations of chaos. But urgency in building a different version of events, and bringing as many people into the world as possible. Whoever wants to come along is welcome to come along.
