Brief Description

The goal of the Native American, Native Hawaiian, and Alaska Native Artists Only Purchase Initiative is to diversify the state’s public art collection by purchasing artwork from Native or Indigenous artists in all stages of their careers. All visual arts media in all genres, suitable for interior or exterior display, will be considered for purchase. Artwork must be durable, permanent, low-maintenance and in compliance with ADA guidelines upon installation. The project is open to Native American, Native Hawaiian, or Alaska Native artists who reside in the United States as well as galleries in the U.S. who sell the work of Native Artists.
