Back by popular demand, cartoonist Eric Dyck returns to draw live in the Helen Christou Gallery and Hess Gallery. Much more than that, his cartoons are going to be related to people’s stories about kohlrabi, an often misunderstood vegetable whose mere mention elicits strong emotions from descendants of European settlers in Alberta.
Curator: Jaylyn Potts, Museum Studies Intern

Unikkausivut: Stories from the North features a selection of Inuit prints that illustrate the colourful stories that have been passed down through many generations. Many Canadians are unfamiliar with Inuit stories – in spite of their number and variety – because they were traditionally passed along orally. Inuit communities use storytelling as a way to share knowledge about their history and culture; with each new generation comes new details, thus contributing to the many variations and abundance of their stories.
