Third Annual Native American Arts Expo
This is the first year literacy as an art will be highlighted at this annual Native American exhibit. Event organizers plan to have Heyday Books of Berkeley on hand to discuss and sell many of the works published by Native Americans from the northern California region.
Traditional and contemporary Native American artists come together to showcase their art, share their stories, and educate visitors about the American Indian Art market and what it means to identify as “Native American” in today’s world. Enjoy discussions and presentations by exhibitors and wares for sale at vendor booths. Several new artists will be exhibiting this year. Artists, basket makers, jewelry makers, poets, traditional dancers, crafters, and musicians are excited to share their art and their cultural knowledge and experience. Collectors of Pomo baskets will also display some of their private collections.
The Expo concludes with a concert by the Pomo Indian band “Black Horse Blues” in Coleman Hall.
