Museum Exhibitions

Any artists or craftspeople, who are members of federally recognized Indian tribes*, who are interested in having their work considered for a future Indian Arts and Crafts Board promotional museum exhibition at one of our three museums, should send a letter expressing their interest, a copy of their enrollment document, photos or slides of their recent work, and some background information on their work to the coordinator of this program:

Indian Arts and Crafts Board 
Museum Exhibition Program 
1849 C Street, NW
MS 2528-MIB
Washington, D.C. 20240 
For current and recent exhibitions at the IACBs museums, please click on these links: Sioux Indian Museum, Southern Plains Indian Museum, and Museum of the Plains Indian
The IACB provides services, including Source Directory listings, to enrolled members of  entities on the list published by the Bureau of Indian Affairs under the Federally Recognized Indian Tribe List Act of 1994, 25 U.S.C. § 5130.  Consistent with other statutes defining this Department's responsibilities and obligations to Indian tribes, the Department interprets the first definition of Indian tribe in the Indian Arts and Crafts Act as those tribes listed on the tribal entities list published in the Federal Register.
