Nanaimo Museum Feature Exhibit - Coast Salish Art Revitalization


Coast Salish art is a distinct style among the art of the Indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest. What is Sacred? explores the past, present and future of Coast Salish art, highlighting a selection of artists from Snuneymuxw and other nations of the mid-island region. The historical and contemporary art in the exhibit - wool and cedar weavings, stone sculpture, wood carvings - reflect cultural teachings that have been passed down for thousands of years. Interactive activities for all ages guide learning about unique qualities of Coast Salish art. Experience how the art form is now flourishing, in a celebration of the richness and vitality of Coast Salish art.


Exhibit Curator Eliot White-Hill, Kwulasultun, is a visual artist and storyteller from the Snuneymuxw First Nation, one of many Coast Salish Nations.


The exhibit runs from May - November at the Nanaimo Museum Feature Exhibit Gallery.
