The Passing of Artist Beau Dick

I was sorry to hear of the passing of celebrated artist Beau Dick this week, a Kwakwaka’wakw master carver and a hereditary chief from the northern tip of Vancouver Island.

He was known for his mask carvings and as an advocate for Aboriginal rights. You may have noticed that a previous post about him on Canadian Art Junkie has been very popular this week. See that post here.

Canadian Art just posted on his death today, article here.
