SQUAMISH CULTURAL CENTRE GOES ONLINE
Artists associated with the recently opened and refurbished Squamish Lil-wat Cultural Centre in Whistler, B.C. will get access to a wider world through a newly launched online site. Contemporary carvings and paintings by Squamish, Dene, St’at’imc, and Lil’wat artists, available for sale at SLCC, can be viewed and bought through the site. The venture taps into a world-wide market for West Coast and other Aboriginal contemporary art works, and extends the reach of this innovative cultural centre. Created as part of the legacy of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, the SLCC houses interactive exhibitions of contemporary and traditional Squamish and Lil’wat art, artifacts, and architecture.
