Canada: Marvel at the art of Inuit in Manitoba
Winnipeg (dpa / tmn) – In the future, travelers to Canada will be able to visit Inuit artwork in Winnipeg. In the provincial capital of Manitoba, the new Inuit Art Center QAUMAJUQ will open at the end of March after several years of construction, Travel Manitoba announced. The museum is part of the Winnipeg Art Gallery and displays the world’s largest public collection of contemporary and traditional Inuit art with over 14,000 exhibits such as sculptures, prints, drawings, ceramics, and textiles. The Inuit are the indigenous people of the Canadian Arctic. QAUMAJUQ stands for “It’s bright, lit up.” There is currently one Travel Warning To Canada. (www.wag.ca/qaumajuq)
