Coming Soon: Gallery of Northwest Coast Masterworks
In case you missed our big news last month, MOA will soon be home to a significant collection of historical and contemporary Indigenous artworks and a new Gallery of Northwest Coast Masterworks. The anonymous donation of more than 200 pieces of Indigenous art, worth an estimated $7 million, is believed to be the largest collection of Northwest Coast First Nations art to return to B.C. in recent decades.
Make Your Own Ceramic Art with MOA’s Artist in Residence
Javier Ramirez, a highly acclaimed ceramic artist from Mexico, is in residence at MOA until December 15. Drop by and visit him as he creates a Tree of Life sculpture for our collection. Or better yet, you can join Javier this Saturday for a rare chance to sculpt your own ceramic creations and have them fired in a dugout, wood-burning kiln on MOA’s grounds. Learn more and get tickets.
