If a picture's worth a 1,000 words, then imagine the value of a room full of authentic Native American artwork. The 5th Annual Cherokee Art Market will feature more than 130 elite Native American artists from across the nation on Oct. 9 -10, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Cherokee Art Market will be held in the Sequoyah Grand Ballroom at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa located at 777 West Cherokee Street, Catoosa, OK 74015. Admission to the Cherokee Art Market will be $5 per person.

The finest Native American artwork representing many different tribes will be displayed and sold including beadwork, pottery, painting, basketry, sculptures and textiles. In addition, guests will enjoy a variety of cultural performances and the Art Tour of Tulsa.
