The Heard Museum is excited to announce the return of the 21st Annual Katsina Doll Marketplace on April 8, an event completely free to the public happening in the Steele Auditorium. Starting at 10 a.m., this is the nation’s largest gathering of Hopi katsina doll carvers who will show and sell their unique creations alongside musical performances, carving demonstrations and a drawing for the signature katsina doll.
“We’re thrilled to welcome more than 100 artists from across North America to show their traditional and contemporary doll carving styles,” said David M. Roche, Dickey Family Director and Heard Museum CEO. “Whether you’re a new or experienced collector, this is the premier event for meeting the best established and emerging carvers.”
The 2023 signature katsina doll by Michael Dean Jenkins, worth $3,000, will be up for raffle during the event. Patrons can purchase tickets for the drawing in-store at the Heard Museum Shop or by phone at 602.252.8344 for $2 each or 6 for $10. The raffle drawing will take place on the day of the event and the winner does not need to be present to win.
The Heard Museum Shop will also host a Best of Show for the event. All entries must be submitted by April 7 at 2 p.m. inside the museum shop. Winners will be announced before the marketplace.
