AAA Editor Notes
Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art is downtown at 639 Hornby St. between W. Georgia and Dunsmuir sts. The museum is dedicated to Bill Reid, one of Canada's finest artists and a passionate proponent of Northwest Coast art. Reid was a master Haida goldsmith as well as a noted sculptor, carver, broadcaster, writer and spokesman for his native people.

His gold and silver jewelry forms the basis of the museum's permanent collection. Other highlights include his masterpiece, an 8.5-metre (28 ft.) bronze frieze titled “Mythic Messengers,” and a massive 6.7-metre (22 ft.) totem pole carved in honor of the artist. Video displays alongside Reid's art allow visitors to watch him at work at different stages of his life. The gallery also hosts changing exhibitions of contemporary indigenous art of the Northwest Coast.

Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
