In 2012, the Museum of Anthropology presented, Ḱesu’, a retrospective exhibition on the art and life of Kwakwaka’wakw artist Doug Cranmer (1927–2006). A self-proclaimed “whittler” and “doodler,” Cranmer’s understated and elegant style quickly found an international following. Skillfully weaving excerpts from his friends and family, facts about his life and examples of his stunning artwork, this book celebrates Cranmer’s personality, paradoxes and profound influence on generations of Kwakwaka’wakw First Nations artists.
COVID-19 policies are in effect, until further notice—including mandatory face masks while inside the Museum. (Updated April 21, 2022).Learn More
