The second-floor Alaska Gallery, the museum’s history gallery, remains open along with the first and second floor atrium galleries. Currently on view through March in those galleries are:
“Life in Alaska Leading to Statehood,” which re-creates 1950s Alaska through photographs and objects: “Northwest Black Pioneers,” which tells the stories of Black pioneers seeking freedom and opportunity in Alaska, Oregon and Washington; “Synthesizing Ideas: 2009 Anchorage School District Art Exhibit;” “I Draw the Line…On Ignorance, Racism, Violence and Hatred!,” an exhibit of art by Anchorage high school students; and “FromBeginning2End,” a Children’s Gallery exhibit about artists as storytellers.
The entire museum will close March 30 through May 29 in preparation for move-in to the new addition.
The expanded museum will return to usual admission rates ($8 general admission, $7 seniors and military) on May 30, when the museum hosts a grand opening of its expansion building featuring live music, food vendors and family art activities. Opening day admission and festivities are free, thanks to a $25,000 donation from Wells Fargo.
