Native Art Marketplace, a celebration of the art and culture of Wisconsin’s Native peoples will return, June 5 and 6, 2021. Modifications make this indigenous art showcase even more accessible with a slate of virtual and in-person events, all free to the public. Pre-registration is required for the virtual programs.
The in-person market will take place at LEAF’s Mąąwakącąk art studio, the former Badger Army Ammunition Plant (7 miles south of Baraboo on Highway 12, between Prairie du Sac and Baraboo). Visitors can purchase traditional and contemporary authentic Native art, from quill and beadwork to paintings and jewelry. All booths will be socially distanced, and masks are mandatory within the studio.
In-person market artists: Kimberly Crowley (Ho-Chunk Black Ash Baskets), Karen Ann Hoffman (Oneida Raised Beadwork and Storytelling), Christopher Sweet (Ho-Chunk/White Earth Ojibway Painting), Brian Szabo (Sicangu Lakota jewelry), Melanie Tallmadge Sainz (Ho-Chunk Quillwork), Jennifer White Eagle (Ho-Chunk Fingerweaving), and Leah Winneshiek (Ho-Chunk silver and gemstone jewelry).
In addition, a bead art video and activity are available throughout the weekend. Cultural art educator Melanie Tallmadge Sainz (Ho-Chunk) will teach how to make beaded friendship bracelet. One hundred bead kits will be mailed “first come-first serve”.
