UNPRECEDENTED ACCESS

The Inuit Art Centre will make the WAG’s stone carving collection accessible for the first time, literally bringing the collection of over 7,500 Inuit sculptures to light. You will be able to view the entire collection while watching curators, conservators and preparators at work as they plan exhibitions, and document and study art.
