Santa Fe Railyard chosen for new Indigenous Fine Art Market

See also

It was announced today that Santa Fe's Railyard District, home of the Farmer's Market, will be the site for The Indigenous Fine Art Market (IFAM). The new Native arts market will take place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday of Indian Market week which only slightly overlaps with the SWAIA Santa Fe Indian Market in August.

This is ideal as the market will be within walking distance of the events on the Plaza and other markets such as those at the El Dorado. IFAM events, which will include a Wednesday night kickoff dance party on Aug. 20, a special dinner for artists, family and friends on Aug. 21st, and art sales and performances on Aug. 21-23, will be in the Railyard.

This is a great venue for this exciting new market. There was some discussion of the event being held at the Santa Fe Indian School on Cerrillos Road, however concern was expressed about the distance from The Plaza.

Another plus is that the Railrunner stops there bringing visitors to the Railyard and to the new market.

IFAM is a celebration of native art and the cultures that inspire it. It was born out of a positive movement by artists who want a voice in how their market is produced. IFAM is a juried art show and will include only the highest quality artwork. Also featured will be different cultural performance stages representing tribal diversity.
