New Inuit Art Sculpture Exhibit At National Gallery

There is a new exhibit of Inuit art sculpture at the National Gallery in Ottawa, Canada. This exhibit features selected pieces of Inuit sculpture.  These works were created between the late 1940's to the late 1960's. This period is considered by many to be a golden period of Inuit art since the Inuit were still living the traditional lifestyle they had for hundreds of years. This collection of Inuit sculpture captures that old traditional lifestyle before many Inuit started to modernize shortly after this time period.


A news video clip is presently available at the CBC website which shows some of this impressive collection of Inuit art sculpture.
