The Dennos Museum Center at Northwestern Michigan College of Traverse City, Michigan will organize an exhibition consisting of 50 prints in observance of this significant 50th Anniversary milestone. Prints will be selected from the Museum's collection and represent each year of the 50 year history of Inuit printmaking beginning with 1959. The museum holds prints from co-operatives including Baker Lake, Cape Dorset, Holman, Pangnirtung, as well as miscellaneous and independent co-operatives. The prints exhibited will also include a Cape Dorset 2009 Annual Print Collection release.
The exhibition will open with the date of the annual release sale of the Cape Dorset 2009 Annual Print Collection. This will also coincide with the annual meeting of the Inuit Art Society consisting of Inuit Art collectors throughout the United States who will meet at the Dennos Museum Center the weekend of the Annual Dorset Collection release.
