"Art from the Arctic: Inuit Prints and Sculpture" (11/20/09-2/14/10) exhibition label text:

Kenojuak, one of Canada’s most famous artists, claims to create images that please her and that she does not imbue them with special meaning or stories. As with most Inuit artists, her subject matter tends towards that which is most familiar – animals. The owl and the raven have played important roles in the legends and stories of the Inuit. Dogs performed a critical task for Inuit survival at one time as they pulled the hunter’s sled across the ice.
