We’re crowdsourcing new traditions during the holiday season
From rustic lakeside huts to designer tree houses, from saunas to village fish camps and smokehouses, Northerners are the masters of the wilderness cabin. Inspired by the cabin culture of the Circumpolar North, the Anchorage Museum is working with designer Chad Taylor to bring Arctic and Nordic sensibilities inside to transform the atrium into a Northern habitat that celebrates winter.
A portable fireplace to gather around for readings, acoustic music, films and informal chats will pop-up both outdoors and inside. Visitors can make items to contribute to the space, and children and families can make objects to have on display as part of the installation.
Please join in. We hope to make this community-driven collection a new seasonal tradition celebrating winters present and past.
Hunker down, get cozy and join us throughout the season for hot chocolate, cider and winter-themed maker projects.
