Plateau tribes of the Upper Columbia are experiencing a resurgence of canoe culture, reconnecting with tribal traditions and with the river that was once so integral to their way of life. The MAC, in collaboration with the United Tribes of the Upper Columbia (UCUT) will tell the story of the annual inland canoe journey – from the purchase of old growth cedar logs and carving the dugouts to the annual launch and landing at Kettle Falls each June - through contemporary and historic canoes supported by the words of those who have experienced it.
This summer and fall watch UCUT carvers create a 20-foot dugout canoe on the grounds of the MAC!Get Info about Awakenings: Traditional Canoes and Calling the Salmon Home

From Campbell’s Soup to Mickey Mouse, and from comic strips to balloon dogs, POP Power from Warhol to Koons celebrates the evolution of Pop art, a perennial movement that revels in the new and the now, the celebrity and the commodity, and art made accessible for all. This exhibition focuses on leading contemporary figures such as Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst, and the Japanese master of the Neo-Pop Superflat style, Takashi Murakami, creatively shown alongside the likes of seminal American Pop leaders like Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist, and Robert Indiana, to name just a few.
Curated by the Taubman Museum of Art’s Deputy Director of Exhibitions and Education, Dr. Patrick Shaw Cable.Get Info about POP Power from Warhol to Koons: Masterworks from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation
