Museum of Anthropology - Free Admission
Come and explore the Gallery of Northwest Coast Masterworks. This new gallery is dedicated to Indigenous art from the Northwest Coast thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, the Doggone Foundation and the Government of Canada.
The anonymous donor collected more than 200 pieces of important Indigenous art starting in the 1970s. This is thought to be the largest collection of Northwest Coast First Nations art to return to BC in many decades.
The pieces will be displayed with commentary from contemporary Indigenous artists speaking to the importance of the works shown. This opening welcomes children and will feature musical and visual performances. You can even participate in creating a digital graffiti wall!
