Art of the North


Untitled, Mt. McKinley
Sydney M. Laurence
The Anchorage Museum Association has a wide-ranging collection of art that reflects Alaska and the circumpolar North. Seven galleries on the Museum's ground floor are devoted to this collection. These galleries include:

  • Early views of Alaska
  • Life in the North
  • Paintings by Sydney Laurence, perhaps Alaska's best known artist
  • Portraits, both traditional and unconventional
  • Landscape paintings
  • Works by contemporary Alaska Native artists

The galleries slowly change as the museum adds new works, or as sensitive works are rotated off display.
