Many Different Faces: 39th Annual Anchorage School District Art Exhibition
On view Feb. 26 - March 27
The 38th annual Anchorage School District exhibition showcases artwork from the district’s most creative student artists. This year’s theme, “Many Different Faces,” ties into the museum’s recent “Andy Warhol: Manufactured” exhibition by emphasizing self-portraits and family caricatures.
This exhibition gives local K-12 students the rare opportunity to display their art in a museum. Works are chosen by teachers and include drawings, paintings, metalwork, ceramics, sculpture and multimedia.
For students, showing artwork in the museum is an honor that encourages them to pursue their artistic talent. Often, students showcased in this exhibition are asked to participate in other art contests locally and nationally. For more information, contact Anchorage Museum Art Education Coordinator Jody Jenkins at 929-9269.
The Anchorage Museum is the largest museum in Alaska and one of the top 10 most visited attractions in the state. The museum’s mission is to share and connect Alaska with the world through art, history and science. General admission is $12 adult, $9 senior/student/military, $7 ages 3 to 12, free ages 2 and younger. Learn more online at www.anchoragemuseum.org.
