"Arctic Art" The Harry Goldsmith Collection of Inuit Soapstone Sculpture" was an exhibition of Inuit soapstone sculpture which depicted traditional life and the environment. The exhibition's nine soapstone carvings were created by Inuit artists in Quebec during the 1970's. To demonstrate the continuity of the Arctic artistic tradition, the soapstone sculptures were complemented by five prehistoric ivory carvings by the Ipiutak people. Curators for the exhibition were Stanley A. Freed, then-curator in the Museum's Department of Anthropology and Laila Williamson, then-senior scientific assistant at the Museum. An Arthur Ross Exhibit of the Month, the sculptures were on view in the Hall of Mollusks and Our World from June 14, 1991 through January, 1992.
Individuals and institutions involved in the creation of the exhibition: Stanley A. Freed; Laila Williamson; AMNH Department of Anthropology.
