The Anchorage Museum’s Polar Lab initiative recently received $150,000 from the Surdna Foundation through its Thriving Cultures grant program. The three-year grant will fund a wide range of programs and exhibitions that engage artists with the Arctic, helping give Indigenous artists a voice in contemporary Northern issues. Projects funded include the museum’s Arctic artists-in-residence program, Curated Conversations, and projects developed by local and international artists for the 2016 Polar Lab exhibition.
We are grateful to the Surdna Foundation for its long-term commitment to helping artists and the museum to share the story of the North.
