MIA Docent Tours

Docent Tour

Join one of MIA’s docents for a 30-minute tour through the museum’s permanent collection to learn more about the different Inuit regions, art styles and materials used to create the works on display. FREE with museum admission, late arrivals are welcome to join tours already in session. For specific dates and times please review the events calendar.

 

Please note that tours are led by volunteers. In the event of volunteer unavailability, MIA staff cannot guarantee that an arts activity will take place.

Art Days: Unleash Your Creativity

This month our art assistants were inspired by Qaluituk Kingwatsiaq’s “Tarrilikitaarq” (Butterfly) from the 2012 Cape Dorset Print Collection. You can create their own butterflies with them on weekends  (Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays).
No pre-registration required, drop-ins welcome!

 

Please note that art activities are facilitated by volunteers. In the event of volunteer unavailability, MIA staff cannot guarantee that an arts activity will take place.

Follow Your Art

Each work of art has a style, or a group of visual characteristics. Take the ‘Follow Your Art’ quiz to find out what styles appeal to you. 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)
