Shelters are located on the Anchorage Museum lawn, the 5th Avenue parking garage roof, SEED Lab parking lot, Chanstnu Muldoon Park, The Gardens at Bragaw, and Kiwanis Fish Creek Park through November and feature images by multiple artists examining the Northern landscape. The installations will be in place through November 2020.
