Native American Student Art Show

The Native American Student Art Show (NASAS) was established in 1979 to encourage Native youth to develop their own creativity, recognizing that the future preservation and evolution of our culture lies with them. Native youth from K-12 are invited to submit artwork for a curated and juried show every November. The artworks are displayed in our South Rotunda every November-January and winning artists receive a cash prize.

Young artists have the choice of making their works available for sale during the show, with 100 percent of each purchase returning directly to the young artist. Through their artworks, today’s youth will be able to share their unique perspectives and be opened to the importance and viability of art as a future for themselves and the future of their communities’ ways of life.

For more information about the show and how to submit please contact Rachel Moore at or 505-724-3564
