The Dennos Museum Center

The Dudley & Barbara Smith Wing for Inuit Art

Two galleries, including the Power Family Inuit Gallery, are currently undergoing renovation and expansion. At this time, we have a temporary exhibition of works from our collection on view in the existing space and in other spaces in the museum. Call the Dennos Museum Center at (231)995-1055 for more information.

The works in the Dennos Museum Center's Inuit collection present a survey of Inuit stonecut, stencil, lithograph, etching, aquatint and chine-collé prints, tapestries, sculptures and artifacts from the late 1950s to the present. Selected from more than 1,500 objects in the Museum's permanent collection, the exhibition features artists from numerous communities within Nunavut, a Canadian territory in the Canadian Arctic. As a whole, the exhibition is intended to reveal the vision and scope of Contemporary Inuit art, not only through first generation masters such as Pudlo Pudlat, Kenojuak Ashevak, and Kananginak Pootoogook, but also of new artists whose works reflect not only Inuit traditions of years past, but of contemporary life and current issues in the Arctic and the art world.
