Museum of Inuit Art

The Museum of Inuit Art (MIA) is located at Toronto’s waterfront. It is southern Canada’s only museum dedicated solely to Inuit art. With both a permanent collection and touring exhibitions, the MIA offers something new every time you visit.

There are five galleries in the museum.

1. Artistic History and Thematic Foundations of Inuit Art

2. Diversity of Styles and Artistic Expression

3. Masterworks and Contemporary Sculptures

4 and 5. Special Exhibitions and Audio-Visual Presentation Centre

There are currently two temporary exhibitions at the MIA. One features large scale drawings from Kinngait, the other is a retrospective on Kananginak Pootoogook, one of the most prolific Inuit visual artists.

I highly recommend a trip to this inspiring, one-of-a-kind museum.
