Description:

Dr. Daniel Albrecht visits the University Libraries to talk about Arctic Spirit: Inuit Art from the Albrecht Collection, a traveling exhibit from the Heard Museum, on display in Special Collections this summer. The exhibit was created from the more than 1,000 items that Dr. Albrecht, a UA alumnus, donated to the Heard from his personal collection of Inuit art. Dr. Albrecht's lecture will touch on the sculptures, textiles and drawings of the Inuit and their rich artistic history.
