Get Up Close and Personal

Get up close and personal with Inuit art! Learn about texture and artistic style of various works in our Educational Collection. Feel the difference between materials and learn why some sculptures are smoother than others. This hands-on experience allows visitors to discover the techniques artists use to achieve stylistic effects. Thursdays from 1PM to 2PM.

Then look for these style icons on each object label to follow your style throughout our space or explore artwork outside your comfort zone. More…Follow Your Art icons (1)
