Please Note that the Yukon Arts Centre will be closed on Thursday, June 21st for Aboriginal Day.

Our Box Office and Galleries will reopen on Friday, June 22nd at 10am. Tickets are available online (here!) or at Arts Underground.

This year, National Aboriginal  Day in the Yukon is truly momentous with the opening of Da Kų Cultural Centre in Haines Junction and the Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre in Whitehorse!   We hope you are able to get out and celebrate!

Here is a note from the Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre:

Don't forget: everyone is welcome to join the drumming procession that will kick off our Grand Opening!

Meet in Rotary Park by 10am, and join drummers and dancers as you walk along the waterfront trail, and then welcome the arrival of the "Spirit of Awakening" canoe at the Cultural Centre!

A great way to get here, and be a part of our Grand Opening celebrations!


About the artist:

Jim Logan began his art career by painting social statement pieces from his own experience as a lay minister in the Kwanlin Dün community in  Whitehorse, Yukon Territory. The most important work from this period was a series entitled "A Requiem for Our Children", which described existence within the Residential School system in Canada. Other noted pieces were the National Pastimes series in the exhibition, INDIGENA which commented on Canadian apathy toward the hardship and poverty of the Native community in Canada.

Jim Logan is a founding member and captain of the Metis Art Council, former co-chair of the Society of Canadian Artists of Native Ancestry (SCNA) and a recipient of the British Columbia Aboriginal Arts Award and two Canada Council Awards. Jim Logan currently works for the Canada Council of the Arts as a Visual Arts Section Officer.
