MIA Visitor Valerie H.N. with "Bridge in Pangnirtung" (2010) by Elisapee Ishulataq, Pangnirtung, stencil print

Where are you from?

Winnipeg, MB

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

Yes it is my first visit. I have an interest in Inuit and their art after living in Kangiqtugaapik (Clyde River).

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

It brings back wonderful memories of living in Clyde River and visiting Panniqtuuq (Pangnirtung). It is a very charming print, showing a beautiful community.
