Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian

The Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian was founded in 1937 and is the oldest non-profit, independent museum. While famous for their focus on little-known artistic genres and solo shows by living Native American artists, there are plenty of other unique exhibitions of contemporary and historic Native American art.

Meow Wolf

At Meow Wolf, you can experience interactive art forms or simply enjoy the sights from the sidelines, though you might not be able to resist some of the current interactive art projects. If you plan your trip right, you could even test out an immersive project such as the Kaleidoscape dark ride. Check out their website, and plan your trip today!

Museum of Indian Arts & Culture

The Museum of Indian Arts & Culture not only gives visitors access to featured exhibitions including information on Southwestern pottery, but also to audio recordings, historical files, and more to help you learn more about the heritage and overall history of the Natives.

Center for Contemporary Arts

The Center for Contemporary Arts hosts showings of independent films and performances, holds educational programs, and showcases artist exhibitions. If you’re looking for a new way to see art, check out the CCA. There’s likely to be something unlike anything you’ve seen before.

IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts

Visit the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts (MoCNA) to see the most progressive work of contemporary Native artists. The main mission of the MoCNA is to advance scholarships and the interpretation of Native arts for audiences everywhere. Take a look at some of the different art forms and artists that can be seen here, and you just might find a new favorite.
