Yukon artists make American museum grade

The Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art decided it was time to see what was happening north of the 60th parallel. Curator Denise Markonisch spent three years travelling the country, looking for artists that could be part of an exhibit on contemporary Canadian art.

Oh, Canada recently opened at the museum, and three Yukon artists have their work included, Charles Stankievech, Eryn Foster and Joseph Tisiga.
