Online Exhibit - Alaskan Native Art

Alaska Native cultures are rich and diverse, and their art is a representation of their history, skills, tradition, adaptation, and nearly twenty thousand years of continuous life in some of the most remote places on earth. Representing art from Iñupiat and Yupik artists, this small display presents some of the different art forms produced by Alaskan Native artists. It also shows how traditional materials like seal skin, walrus ivory, caribou fur and soapstone are still used in contemporary Native art. The art in this exhibit all comes from the museum’s Ann Cabot Collection.
