Cape Dorset

Cape Dorset is the most well known of the art making cooperatives in Nunavut. Beginning in the early 1950's, sculpture, carved mostly from the locally found green serpentine, was marketed to Canadian cities. The highly respected annual print collections were produced in 1959 and the rest is history as collectors responded with such enthusiasm that a new art form was created.
