Spirits of Land, Air, and Water: Antler Carvings from the Robert and Judith Toll Collection
April 11, 2013 - February 23, 2014

Caribou antlers are a source of inspiration for Inuit artists across the Canadian Arctic. Working within the constraints of antler's forms, they create a variety of fanciful creatures, exuberant dancers, and ethereal figures. This exhibibition highlights the ingenuity and vision of artists such as Luke Anowtalik, Luke Iksiktaaryuk, and Thomas Suvaaraq.

Sponsored by the Russell and Janet Doubleday Endowment Fund.
