Decolonizing Alaska Nov 2-30

We're seeking feedback on our Decolonizing Alaska Exhibit. The survey will be open until Dec 5, 2018.

Decolonizing Alaska is a multimedia visual art exhibit featuring contemporary artists exploring and responding to Alaska’s history of colonization. A collaboration of more than 30 diverse Alaska artists, both Native and non-Native, the exhibit introduces new ideas around Alaska culture. Exhibit curator Asia Freeman will give a presentation.

Made possible with support from Trading Union, Petersburg Community Foundation, Brunnell Street Arts Center, National Endowment for the Arts, the City of Homer, the Rasmuson Foundation, the Alaska State Council on the Arts, and the CIRI Foundation.
