Coming Soon to MIA

28 Mar

Our April newsletter went out last week (if you want to subscribe but haven’t, click here!). The museum has some very exciting programming coming up next month and you, our blog readers, will get some sneak peeks behind the scenes about it.

If you read our newsletter, you’ll know that we have two very exciting additions to MIA coming soon: a visible storage area and a new special exhibition about stone cut prints from Ulukhaktok (Holman). Our visible storage area is currently under construction, and we’re very excited about how this will turn out.

Part of MIA's team works on creating our new visible storage area

We also made some changes to our display areas this weekend. New informational panels went up in many areas of of our permanent collection, thanks to our Head Museum Technician. Take a look at the process:

Rearranging some objects in our Nunavik case.

Placing our new panel focusing on Joe Talirunili.

Adding information about Karoo Ashevak into the Kitikmeot case.

We’re very excited about all the new changes coming to MIA, and hope you are too.

Also – don’t forget that Friday, April 1 is the twelfth anniversary of the creation of Nunavut. MIA will be offering special family programming  that day, focused on learning about the diversity of Nunavut. Be sure to check back later this week to learn more about Canada’s newest and largest territory.
