Indian artists at Grand Teton National Park
Programs May through September
by Grand Teton National Park
May 23, 2006

Each year, Grand Teton National Park sponsors a summer-long program for visiting American Indian artists at the Colter Bay Visitor Center and Indian Arts Museum. For the past 31 years, artists from diverse tribes have demonstrated their traditional and contemporary art forms, providing visitors an opportunity to gain an understanding of – and appreciation for – American Indian art and culture.

Artists participating in the guest program represent several tribes from across the United States. Art forms demonstrated include painting, weaving, beadwork, decorative gourds and musical instruments. Guest artists exhibit daily, Monday through Sunday, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the lower level of the Colter Bay Indian Arts Museum. Artists also offer their finished items for purchase.
