Squirrel Material Traditions
This year, our thematic approach centers on the material traditions associated with the Arctic Ground Squirrel native to Alaska, Canada, and Siberia. Their warm fur has been historically used in the production of high-quality parkas. For the project, we have engaged the talent and expertise of four accomplished artists: Merna Wharton, Golga Oscar, Michelle Ravenmoon, Kunaq Tahbone, and Amy Topkok.
