  • William McLennan has been an integral asset to the Freda Diesing School of Northwest Coast Art.  His dedication to the study of Northwest Coast Art has been supportive to artists from various nations. 

    In 1975, McLennan began working at the Museum of Anthropology.  In 1993, he began curating exhibits. His first exhibit as curator was called 'The Transforming Image,' after his discovery through extensive research that infrared film could reveal Northwest Coast paintings that had disappeared under the patina of age. 

    'The Transforming Image' is studied by Freda Diesing First Nations Fine Arts students and will be for years to come. The book helps current generations of Northwest Coast First Nations access the creative achievement of their ancestors and build on the cultural knowledge that the old paintings reveal.

    When Bill retired from his work at the Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver, a study grant was established in his name. McLennan retired on October 31, 2013. The grant will be offered to two students from the 3rd year of the Freda Diesing program to travel and study ancestral objects at the Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver, British Columbia.

    Award Covers:

    • Return flight from Terrace to Vancouver (3 days, 2 nights);
    • 2 Nights stay on-campus at the University of British Columbia; 
    • $75 Per diem for meals for 3 days ($225);
    • Taxi to and from the airport to campus accommodations ($40);
