The YVR Art Foundation recently announced that they are now accepting grant applications from Yukon First Nations artists for their Masterpiece Study Program. Previously, only BC First Nations artists were eligible.

Partner museums include the UBC Museum of Anthropology (Vancouver), Museum of Vancouver (Vancouver), Royal BC Museum (Victoria), and The Bill Holm Center for the Study of Northwest Native Art at the Burke Museum (Seattle).
