The Power Family Inuit Gallery is currently undergoing renovation and expansion. Selections from the Dennos Inuit collection will be exhibited in other spaces within the Museum during the transition period. Call the Dennos Museum Center at (231)995-1055 for more information.
The works in the Dennos Museum Center's Power Family Inuit Gallery 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.
