A Project for the Heart of Nanaimo

supernatural eagle bringing the sun back to the world

The Gallery is commissioning Snuneymuxw father and son team, Joel and William Good, to create a new large scale public artwork especially for our place. Carved in cedar and inspired by a Coast Salish origin story, William and Joel will create an eight-foot wide sculptural artwork called Supernatural Eagle Bringing the Sun Back to the WorldIt will become a landmark on Commercial Street and a point of pride downtown, installed permanently and prominently above the Gallery’s entranceway. 

You can help us realize this dream by contributing to the costs of production, installation, and acquisition of Joel and William’s work for the Gallery’s permanent collection, so the artwork can remain in place for years to come. Visit our online campaign to learn about Joel and William Good, stay up-to-date on how the project is unfolding, check out the incentives the Gallery is offering, and make your contribution.
