Inuit Carving and Eskimo Art Featured in Native Peoples Magazine

The May/June 2006 issue of Native Peoples magazine has a section on Inuit carving and Eskimo art. The article is called 'Carving Out a Place in the World: Inuit Art of Canada' and was written by Norman Vorano who is the curator of contemporary INuit art at the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Ottawa, Canada. The article shows some nice examples of Inuit carvings in full color.

This article will give some nice exposure to Inuit art and is a nice change to see since most coverage of Native art in publications such as Native Peoples tend to be concentrated on Native American Southwest art.

For other great examples of Inuit art, see Inuit Carvings at Free Spirit Gallery.
