As the 21st century approached, museum staff wanted to to introduce more contemporary perspectives to exhibits. In 2009 a major donation by Robert and Judith Toll dramatically enhanced the museum's capacity to do just that. In subsequent years donations by other collections have followed Donors' different tastes, reflected in these gifts, along with seelctive museum purchases, have helped build a well-rounded collection reflecting the diversity of artistic accomplishments across the North.
This exhibit features significant objects from the collection and highlights the many stories they can tell, from the challenges faced by Arctic explorers to the joys of community life as depicted by contemporary Inuit artists.
