At our recent trip to the SAM, we visited some exhibits and areas that we've seemed to have missed in our recent visits.
This is Canoebreaker by Robert Davidson andI it is included in an exhibit entitled Pacific Currents. Davidson's works are some of my favorites, and this is a landmark piece in his career as it interprets the northwest salish vocabulary in new and exiting ways! The white ovoid justaposed in the background sums up the whole concept. I find this to bre quite a breakthrough and I am glad that the SAM now has it in their permanent collection. I will look forward to seeing it again in the future.
Pacific Currents is a long term show as it was hung in Marcj of 2015 and will close in around 2 years from that date.
