The South­west­ern As­so­ci­a­tion for In­dian Arts has an­nounced Ira Wil­son as its new ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor. Wil­son spent 26 years as the lead buyer for the In­dian Pue­blo Cul­tural Cen­ter, pro­vid­ing an eco­nomic op­por­tu­nity to a di­verse group of Na­tive artists. Orig­i­nally from Teec Nos Pos, Ari­zona, and raised in a tra­di­tional Navajo home, he has con­nec­tions with the tra­di­tional and con­tem­po­rary Na­tive art world, which will serve as an as­set as he leads SWAIA into its 100th year in 2021. Wil­son will take over for Dallin May­bee, who served in the role for nearly four years. The or­ga­ni­za­tion’s next ma­jor event is Santa Fe In­dian Mar­ket on Au­gust 18 and 19.
