New Acquisition at SAM
At our last trip to the SAM, we visited some exhibits and areas that we've seemed to have missed in our other recent visits.
This is Canoebreaker by Robert Davidson and 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 juxtaposed in the background sums up the whole concept. I find this to be 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 March of 2015 and will close in around 2 years from that date.
