Sept. 10 declared 'Inuit Art and Culture Appreciation Day'

9 a.m., Sept. 10, 2003 --Delaware Gov. Ruth Ann Minner has declared Wednesday, Sept. 10, “Inuit Art and Culture Appreciation Day” throughout the state in recognition of the opening of a three-month exhibition of rare Canadian Inuit drawings in the University Gallery. The proclamation urges “all Delawareans to visit the exhibition and take advantage of this magnificent cultural opportunity.”

The governor’s proclamation states that “…this important cultural event in Delaware will foster a stronger relationship between the United States and Canada and a better understanding of Canadian Inuit culture.”

The proclamation also notes that the exhibition “is being held in observance of the concluding year of the United Nation’s International Decade of the World's Indigenous People, the 50th anniversary of the first Inuit art exhibition in the United States and the 25th anniversary of the founding of the University Gallery.”

Peter Irniq, Canadian Inuit cultural leader and commissioner of Nunavut, the territory officially recognized by the Canadian government as the home of the Inuit, officially opens the exhibition at 5:30 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 10, in the University Gallery.
