(except Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.)

Free with museum admission

More than 1,700 works of art by students in grades 7- 12 are on display and for sale by emerging master artists. 
Arizona: Few national events celebrate young Native artists. The Student Art Show & Sale held at the Heard Museum in Phoenix is among the best.

A panel of esteemed judges choose outstanding pieces in a juried competition. Winners receive cash prizes and ribbons.
Students price their own artwork and keep most of the sales proceeds. Student artists have earned more than $250,000 during these yearly events.

The sale of note cards featuring students' art work also raises money for scholarships and grants. These are available at the Heard Museum Shops. More than $185,000 has been raised.

The Student Art Show features a vast array of traditional and fine art -- katsina dolls, pottery, baskets, jewelry, beadwork, weavings, paintings and sculpture -- as well as modern pieces in creative mediums.

Many  student artists will be on hand during
Meet the Artists Sneak Preview on Friday, April 9.
