Finding Form Line: Haida Manga

Saturday, November 22, 2014

Northwest Coast Indians Hall

Internationally renowned Haida artist Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas, known for his unique “Haida Manga” style that combines Northwest Coast form lines with the underpinnings of Asian graphic novels known as “manga” (Japanese) and “manhwa” (Korean), will guide Museum visitors to record and examine their own personal stories as they explore themes from Yahgulanaas’ stunning full-color graphic novel book, RED. Visitors are invited to contribute to a dynamic Haida Manga-inspired mural, which will be created on-site in the Hall of Northwest Coast Indians. The event will include a special reading and signing of RED.
