Power of Flight: Visions of Birds in Inuit Art


  • The Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum, Bowdoin College 9500 College Station Brunswick, Maine 04011 USA (map)

Birds inspire Inuit artists in many ways. Some artists evoke birds’ beautiful plumage and graceful flight through carefully rendered details. Others focus on birds’ more abstract importance as powerful shamans’ helpers and as key characters in myths and legends. The sculptures and prints in this exhibit, featuring the work of Canadian and Alaskan Inuit artists, explore these different approaches to birds in Inuit art.

Funded by the Russell and Janet Doubleday Endowment.
