MIA visitor Rebecca W with "Mask" by Dolfus Cadieux (1956 - ), Yellowknife, NWT, Stone, Private Collection on Loan to MIA

Where are you from?

Etobicoke, ON

What brings you to MIA? Is this your first visit?

Yes, it’s my first visit. We were just walking along the Harboufront and stumbled upon the museum.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

I love the colour of the piece and the way the wind blows and how it fits perfectly with the way the stone is coloured.
