Ivvavik National Park: Through the eyes of artists

For the past six years, Parks Canada has brought visual artists to Ivvavik as part of a project called "Art in the Park"


Ivvavik national park is home of the porcupine caribou herd; a vast landscape which includes the British Mountains and Firth River. For the past six years, Parks Canada has brought visual artists to Ivvavik as part of a project called "Art in the Park."

Some artists have interpreted the land through paintings, while others have used sculpture or video.
On March 20, an exhibit showing some collected works was unveiled at Inuvik's Northern Images Gallery.

The show is set to last until April 9. Yellowknife's Northern Images gallery will also feature the works from April 30 to May 21. The gallery show will then visit the Northern Images gallery in Churchill, Manitoba from Canada Day to July 31.

As you can see, the same landscape has been interpreted in many different colours and styles.
