The Heard Museum received as a gift, a collection of more than a thousand pieces of art from Dr. E. Daniel and Martha Albrecht who have collected for more than 45 years. The Albrechts also spent more than 6 years traveling the Canadian and Greenlandic Arctic.

The exhibition at the Heard Museum is called Life in a Cold Place: Arctic Art from the Albrecht Collection and is expected to be on display through to July, 2007.
