Trailbreakers (Summer): Corrine Hunt
Corrine Hunt of Komoyue and Tlingit heritage http://www.corrinehunt.ca is an artist making waves, both positive and negative ones. She created the wavy medals for the Vancouver Olympics, earning both kudos and complaints. And she’s on the front lines of meshing traditional cultural art and icons in very non-traditional settings, such as the frames of a commercial line of eye glasses. Moving traditional Art into the mainstream can bring both celebrity and condemnation.
