2017 Acquisitions Program for NB Aboriginal Artists
The New Brunswick Arts Board, in collaboration with the Department of Tourism, Heritage and Culture, invited Mi’kmaq, Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) and Passamaquoddy artists residing in New Brunswick to submit their artworks to be purchased by the New Brunswick Art Bank.
$20,000 have been invested in this special acquisition of original contemporary artworks in celebration of Canada 150. A jury of Aboriginal artists from the Atlantic region selected the artworks to be purchased. The new acquisitions are now presented in an exhibition and a catalogue has been created.
