In a State of Becoming: Inuit Art from the Collection of Rabbi Harry Sky

Arctic Museum main galleries

This exhibition of Rabbi Harry Sky's donated collection of Inuit transformation carvings focuses on the parallels Rabbi Sky sees between his own teachings – that people are constantly changing and transforming themselves as they live their lives – and Inuit carving of human/animal transformations.

Sponsored by the Russell and Janet Doubleday Endowment Fund.
