Salmon Spawning Run by Susan Point

 

A PROJECTTenTenTen commission

for the Mint Museum of Craft + Design Uptown

Opening October 2010

 

   

"I, a Coast Salish artist, devoted a great deal of time to researching,

trying to revive the art form, attempting to educate the public and my children

to the fact that there is another form of native art unique to British Columbia." 

 

 

 As a Coast Salish artist who has lived on the Musqueam First Nation Reservation in Vancouver, British Columbia, her entire life, Point's work is driven by expressing her cultural heritage.  At the beginning of her career, Point decided to concentrate her art on Coast Salish traditions.  In March 2004, she was appointed to the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts. Over the last three decades, she has created carved and painted pieces that reflect traditional images of the past. Her work has been commissioned by the Vancouver International Airport, Stanley Park in Vancouver, the National Museum of the American Indian, and the UBC Museum of Anthropology, among others.
