Fodor's Review

Named after one of British Columbia's preeminent artists, Bill Reid (1920–98), this small aboriginal gallery is as much a legacy of his works as it is a showcase of current First Nations artists. Displays include wood carvings, jewelry, print, and sculpture, and programs often include artist talks and themed exhibitions such as basket weaving. Reid is best known for his bronze statue The Spirit of Haida Gwaii, The Jade Canoe—measuring 12 feet by 20 feet; the original is an iconic meeting place at the Vancouver International Airport, and its image is on the back of the Canadian $20 bill. More Bill Reid pieces are at the Museum of Anthropololgy.
