Winter is coming. But when the sun goes down, there’s no reason you have to go down with it. Revel in winter like a true Northerner at Lights Out: Polar Lab, the Anchorage Museum’s late-night creative blowout.
The Polar Lab theme brings the outside in, recognizing that our extreme environment inspires us to think big. Doors open 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 14. The night includes:
- DJ Spencer Lee
- Adrenaline sports films:
- “All.I.Can.” a Banff Mountain Film Festival winner featuring some of the world’s best skiers
- Highlights from films by National Geographic’s Bryan Smith, such as “Fringe Elements” about backcountry snowboarding and “A Different Kind of Race” about sea kayak tidal racing
- Art projects for grown ups, including a duct-tape wallet station and LEGO building challenges
- Winter Wii competition
- Elevator Music: The Sweeteners
- Be-the-Art Photo Booth
- Late night eats and drinks, including a build-your-own gourmet mac-and-cheese station and a sushi bar (cash)
- Northern body art: Get a custom, temporary tattoo or create a more elaborate design with stencils and body paint
- Roving advice cart answering guests’ questions about Alaska, the North or life in general. Disclaimer: Advice may or may not be relevant and/or useful.

A little Northern spirit goes a long way. Arts and culture make Northern communities great places to live, work and play. That’s why the Anchorage Museum launched the Polar Lab, an artistic exploration of the current and future state of the North through issues spanning culture, community and the environment.
