Art and Life Along the Northwest Coast

Art and Life Along the Northwest Coast

December 31, 2017 | 5PM

Over their long habitation of the Pacific Northwest, First Peoples have shaped their lifeways around the resources of the water, forests, valleys, and mountains. In tandem, they have developed rich oral traditions and ceremonies that link inextricably to this region. With this new installation of SAM’s collection of Northwest Coast art, visitors will encounter the creative expressions of generations of artists who created forms for daily life, for potlatch ceremonies, and for spiritual balance. The presence of contemporary arts, shown alongside historical forms, highlight the vitality of traditions that are being re-envisioned for present times.

This collection is currently open and has been on display since 2014. Be sure not to miss out! For more information, click here.
