IM: EDGE embraces Chief Operating Officer, Dallin Maybee’s vision of Santa Fe Indian Market as “a living and breathing culture,” adding that the contemporary art show will increase the scope and mission of Indian Market to include “contemporary art forms that do not fit into the traditional Santa Fe Indian Market categories.”
