Native POP Taking Applications for Summer Art Show in Rapid City

Last Updated by SDPB on

Native POP: People of the Plains is taking applications from artists who wish to exhibit art work at the outdoor summer show, this July in Rapid City. 

Native POP is an annual, juried Native art show and cultural celebration of the Great Plains Tribes, which will be held July 15-16, in Rapid City’s Main Street Square

The show aims to reinterpret the traditional art market and celebrate the historic and contemporary values of Native artists. Both emerging and established Native artists shared their work with thousands of people at last year’s event.

Native POP began in 2013 as the Gathering of People, Wind and Water. “The event grew out of an ongoing, large-scale work of public art in granite at Main Street Square, Passage of Wind and Water, and sculptor Masayuki Nagase’s themes of hope, transformation and the aspiration of all beings in nature to live in balance,” according to a Native POP press release.

Eligible participants must be enrolled members of state or federally recognized tribes, in accordance with the Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990, with preference given to artists from Great Plains Tribes.

Applications are due March 31, 2016.
