Venues’ Aboriginal Art Program

An airy stream of metal salmon shimmering overhead, five intricately carved spindle whorls inspired by curling rocks and three long-limbed wolves howling in unison on the Prairies are among the beautiful works of art by more than 90 Aboriginal artists that will grace the venues at the 2010 Winter Games.
