Nine Native American students from Coronado High School will display artwork in the 25th Annual American Indian Student Art Show and Sale sponsored by the Heard Museum Guild from April 4 though 7. 

Art works from Native American students from Coronado High School and throughout the United States and the Heard Museum Guild will display their works at  the Heard Museum at 2301 N. Central Avenue in Phoenix.

The show will run from 5:30-8:30 p.m. on Friday, April 4 (members only sneak preview and silent auction) and Saturday through Monday, April 5 to April 7, 2014 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. (except Sunday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m.)

Native American students in 7th – 12th grades submit their original artwork. Students display their art in a museum setting, have their art judged by a professional panel, compete for scholarships, summer art workshop awards and cash prizes, and potentially sell their artwork at the show.

Works of art from students throughout the United States are displayed and prizes are awarded in 13 different categories (weaving and textiles, beadwork, pottery, jewelry & lapidary, cultural items, drawings, photographs, collage and mixed media, sculpture, computer generated art, graphics, and baskets).

In 2014, Coronado’s largest contingent to date, nine students representing four different tribes (Hopi, Navajo, Pascua Yaqui, and Zuni) are participating. 

Visitors can peruse more than 700 works of art by students in 7th-12th grades that will be on display and for sale. Since 1992, this annual event has returned more than $500,000 to students from the sale of their artwork and more than $400,000 in grants and scholarships.

Last year, Coronado students Presley Thompson and Brody Begay took home several awards in the drawings category.
