Andrea Wilbur-Sigo
(American | Squaxin | Skokomish, born 1975)

Location: The Evergreen State College, Olympia

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Andrea Wilbur-Sigo's hand-carved box tells a story about not letting fish go to waste. Bentwood boxes—with their sides made from a single piece of cedar formed by steaming—were historically used by native people of the Northwest for food and material storage.

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with The Evergreen State College.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Northwest wood carver and artist Andrea Wilbur Sigo has mastered Coast Salish art forms and is the first known native woman carver of many generations of carvers. An active member of the Squaxin Island Tribe, her work reflects her heritage and a robust artistic community.
