A Celebration of Inuit Artistry and Culture

"Our Land: A celebration of Inuit artistry and culture", continues through 15 February at the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art.

This is the first exhibition of the Nunavut Territorial collection of contemporary Inuit art, and celebrates the growth of Inuit creative expression over the past five decades.

"Our Land" is a collaboration between the Peabody Essex Museum, the Government of Canada, and the Government of Nunavut. Sixty-four works demonstrate how long-held artistic traditions of the Inuit inspire contemporary sculptures, prints, fiber art, photography and digital media.
