Join us for a docent-led discussion of the works of James Kivetoruk Moses. Moses is an Alaska artist born in Cape Espenberg, Alaska, in 1903. He spent the first half of his life as a subsistence hunter but pivoted to art in 1953 after an airplane crash left him unable to continue hunting. His work depicts subsistence hunting, fishing, clothing, regalia, tattoos, ceremonies, dances and more.
