Jack Butler and Sheila Butler were heavily involved in creating the Sanavik Co-operative in Baker Lake, Nunavut in the winter of 1971. Sanavik Co-operative became an organization to allow local artists to make art, mostly prints and sell the art in Southern part of Canada. The first box from the A15-42 collection contains archival materials documenting the process and the presentation of Art and Cold Cash (A+CC). A+CC was created in Baker Lake, Nunavut by three senior Canadian artists Sheila Butler, Jack Butler, and Patrick Mahon, including Inuit writer Ruby Arngna’naaq, and artist William Noah. A+CC was designed as an event to display art that is concurrent with the capitalist market. By combining art from Southern and Northern part of Canada, the project combined contemporary art, Inuit art, and the discourses surrounding money. Documents show that Sheila has proposed to display the project to multiple art galleries nationwide. A+CC was showcased in art galleries across Canada, artic settlements, University of Edinburgh, and the Toronto Pearson International Airport in order to reach out to those who may not normally visit art galleries.
