In the summer of 1913, Donald B. MacMillan and six other men set off on an expedition to conduct research and exploration in the far north. Marking the 100th anniversary of this major expedition, this exhibit will highlight the results of their extensive fieldwork, and look at the field studies being conducted by contemporary researchers in the same region.

This exhibit reflects the eclectic eye of the collectors, Marcia and Robert Ellis. it includes a wide range of styles, from highly detailed and realistic to nearly abstract, and works by some of the best-known Inuit artists. Most of the pieces are from Cape Dorset (Kinngait) on Baffin Island, but other communities from across Canada are represented as well, as is Anchorage, Alaska.
