The exhibition, which opens to the public on Thursday, is collaboration between the Canadian Circumpolar Institute and the University of Alberta Museums. The institute is based at the U of A and supports and promotes interdisciplinary research in circumpolar regions including Northern Canada, the Arctic and Antarctica. It is involved with more than 200 U of A researchers and the 50th anniversary exhibition represents just a fraction of the polar artifacts and artwork held by the university’s museum collections.
