Goota Ashoona Sculpture Unveiled at WAG-Qaumajuq
Carved from Verde Guatemala marble, the sculpture welcomes visitors to Qaumajuq, opening in early 2021. The public can now visit the artwork on the corner of St. Mary Avenue and Memorial Boulevard in the heart of downtown Winnipeg.
The artwork was commissioned by the Manitoba Teachers’ Society “to honour teachers all around us—in the land and in our lives—who reveal the truth, wisdom and beauty that connect us all”. Titled Tuniigusiia/The Gift, Ashoona’s multi-faceted sculpture reflects knowledge transfer through education and storytelling, and the important role teachers play in our communities.
