Museum of Anthropology at UBC - (re)Opening

Since 2008, UBC's Museum of Anthropology has been undertaking a $55.5 million expansion and renewal project, which has resulted in limited access to the Museum's collection. MOA has planned a three-day Celebration of Creativity to launch their renovated museum. Beginning on January 23, the festivities will include performances by First Nations dance groups, Cantonese opera demonstrations, and the premiere of Imprint, a specially commissioned interdisciplinary performance piece by Turning Point Ensemble, Owen Underhill and Henry Daniel.

The project has consisted of the construction of a new wing, a replacement of the building envelope, and a redesigning of the visible storage area.
