Founded in 1937, The Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian is New Mexico’s oldest non-profit, independent museum, and is a private non-profit corporation. The Wheelwright offers unique exhibitions of contemporary and historic Native American art. We’re famous for our focus on little-known genres and for solo shows by living Native American artists. The Wheelwright is open seven days a week.

The annual auction is our largest fundraiser, which contributes to operations, educational programs, exhibits, insight, and our commitment to the presentation of Native American art and culture.



Donate contemporary and historic Native American and Southwestern art: jewelry, pottery, textiles, baskets, katsinam, and folk art. Cash and gift certificates are welcome, too! All contributions are fully tax-deductible and support museum operations.
