The 26th annual Northern Plains Indian Art Market wraps up this weekend in Sioux Falls with events at two locations.

Originally conceived in 1988 as an economic development project–a market place where Native American artists could sell their artwork–the show has become a national staple in showcasing American Indian art of the northern plains. It is rated as one of the Top Ten Indian Art Markets in the country by Native Peoples Magazine.

over 800 artists from 7 northern plains states and two Canadian provinces have exhibited.

Since the beginning, the juried art show has drawn entries to compete for the prestigious Best of Show, Best of Fine Arts and Best of Tribal Arts awards. Jurors are selected from a national pool of American Indian art experts, scholars, and respected working artists.

At the Ramkota Hotel Exhibit Hall (3200 W Maple St) the Art Market will be open from 10-6 Saturday and 10 to 4 Sunday. Admission is $5 per person or $7 for a two day pass. Kids under 12 are free.

Saturday at the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds is the traditional pow wow and buffalo feed. The Buffalo feed is at 5pm. The pow wow grand entry is at 1pm and again at 7pm. There is no admission fee for the event at the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds.
