North­west Coast Cool

Where Vancouver - - Art Galleries -

There are over 530,000 rea­sons to make a trip to the Mu­seum of An­thro­pol­ogy (listed be­low). That’s how many ar­chae­o­log­i­cal ob­jects are housed in the award­win­ning, Arthur Erick­son–de­signed build­ing. Now there’s an­other rea­son to visit: the ground­break­ing new Gallery of North­west Coast Mas­ter­works. The stun­ning new dis­play space fea­tures cut­ting-edge tech­nol­ogy, in­clud­ing light­ing that ad­justs to lo­cal weather pat­terns. The gallery’s in­au­gu­ral ex­hibit, In a Dif­fer­ent Light: Re­flect­ing on North­west Coast Art (to spring 2019), looks into the his­to­ries of more than 110 Indige­nous works— from per­sonal be­long­ings to le­gal doc­u­ments. It all adds up to one amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.—Jill Von Sprecken
