Since 2004, the International Folk Art Market has hosted more than 1000 master folk artists from 100 countries in the world’s largest exhibition and sale of works by master folk artists. Artist earnings have exceeded $34 million and impacted more than one million lives in the communities they represent. The Market offers folk artists a respected spot in the global marketplace to gather together and share their handmade traditions and to create economic, social, and individual empowerment.

COVID SAFE PRACTICES

IFAM has adjusted its schedule and operations to accommodate COVID-safe practices. IFAM will strictly follow State of New Mexico public health orders. Mask wearing is mandated for all Market sessions. Social distancing is also built into the configuration of the entry and Market areas. Hand sanitizer and cleaning supplies will be broadly available. IFAM will also be a cashless event, limiting points of contact.

Consistent with current federal guidelines, artists will be required to take a COVID test prior to boarding their international flights.

With the exception of the Wednesday night opening events, no food or beverages (other than free water) will be provided during Thursday-Sunday Market sessions. IFAM understands that the Museum Hill Cafe will be open. IFAM is New Mexico Safe Certified for retail and event activities.

IFAM is equally concerned about safety and security. Consistent with IFAM’s direction, weapons of any kind, including but not limited to guns and knives, are prohibited at all times during this private event for artists, attendees, volunteers, and staff. Bag checks will be conducted by private security and security will be on-hand to address public safety and security as well as asset protection.

To Summarize:

  • All artists will be tested upon arrival
  • All artists will receive vaccinations
  • Dr. Diane Friedman has been working with the DOH and Christus St. Vincent to establish our protocols
  • Masks will be required of all participating in and visiting the Market
  • ALL IFAM staff have participated in the DOH’s Covid safety trainings and are certified
