Exhibits: “Arctic Spirit, Inuit Art from the Albrecht Collection” (Heard Museum through Jan. 20, 2011)

Heard Museum – The exhibition’s 150 sculptures, textiles and graphics offer a rare opportunity to view more than 2,000 years of Canadian Inuit artwork crafted from stone, antlers, tusks, whale baleen, paint, wood, pencil and pen. It’s also worth noting that Arctic Spirit draws from the very best pieces of the Albrecht Collection. Animals such as the mighty musk ox, birds, bears and caribou—all of which are vital to the Inuit—spring to life. Everyday life in Inuit communities is vividly portrayed, including hunting, parenting and even dances. Also, don’t miss stunning newer works by award-winning Inuit artists such as Othniel “Art” Oomtituk.

A 240-page catalog is currently available in the Shop. Arctic Spirit: Inuit Art From the Albrecht Collection at the Heard Museum delves into the lives and the works of the artists in the exhibit as well as providing an artistic guidebook to the communities of the Far North.

The exhibition will be on display through January 20, 2011.
