OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Oklahomans seeking relief from the heat found it at 36e Annual Red Earth Festival, held inside the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.

Some of the most famous and renowned Native American artists, sculptors, potters, painters, dancers, and jewelers displayed their magnificent works of art as visitors strolled through the museum.

“It’s a big event, and we’re all over the state and have opportunities to showcase our local artists as well as our out-of-state artists. So…I think it benefits our state greatly,” said Vickie Norick, Chair of the Red Earth Festival Youth Art Program.

Red Earth also attracts talented young artists, and many of their amazing works could also be seen.

KFOR’s Nate Feken stopped by Red Earth and met some of the visitors and some of the artists that make this event so popular.

News 4 is proud to be the television sponsor of Red Earth, whose mission is to promote the rich traditions of Native American arts and cultures through education, a festival, a museum and a leading fine arts market.
