The Eiteljorg Museum features the world’s foremost collection of contemporary Native American art. The museum’s commitment to contemporary fine art features sponsorship of the Eiteljorg Contemporary Art Fellowship, which celebrates the established and emerging Native American artists of today.
The Eiteljorg Contemporary Art Fellowship program engages artists, art historians, and scholars in an exploration and reinterpretation of Native American cultural and artistic traditions through biennial exhibitions, publications, and associated events. Since 1999, the Fellowship program has awarded over $800,000 in unrestricted grants and fueled the acquisition of more than 200 pieces of art by 40 contemporary artists to the permanent collection.
Visitors to the Eiteljorg Museum are invited to experience the new voices in Native American art through the Eiteljorg Fellowship exhibition and the permanent contemporary collection at the Eiteljorg Museum.
For the first time, an Eiteljorg Contemporary Art Fellowship exhibition has traveled to epicenter of American art—New York City. We Are Here!
, an exhibit designed and curated by the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art, is currently open at the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI), George Gustav Heye Center.
