KNBA - KBC

First Friday

Anchorage-based Iñupiaq artist Tristan ‘Agnauraq’ Morgan is a contemporary visual artist and will be showing some of her work for First Friday (Sept. 7, 2018) at the Alaska Native Heritage Center.

This morning on KNBA, the first in the series of radio stories aired - but attendees to the community event and panel discussion Friday evening got a sneak preview as well as to hear the producers' views and challenges on the production. 

Daysha Eaton and Brian Adams presented on stage at the Anchorage Museum, showing photographs and explaining the reporting process, as well as told an origin story of sorts, wherein Daysha and Brian covered the story of protestors at Standing Rock, and yet did not meet there.

Today, a First Friday Event in downtown Anchorage celebrates the work of an artist, Charles Lucier.  Panu Lucier is his daughter, and has created this showing, at the Summit Spice and Tea Co, at 3030 Denali Street.  

Panu says her father was many things to many people, anthropologist, ungulate biologist focused on caribou, and in many ways a community organizer, long before that became a political buzzword.  She remembers the Urban Natives Unite group that her mother and father both created right here in Anchorage.

Art of an avant-garde Arctic in downtown Anchorage

By Zachariah Hughes, Alaska Public Media

When people imagine Alaska’s Arctic, experimental art isn’t typically first thing that comes to mind.

But a new exhibit at the Anchorage Museum is getting visitors, urbanites, and art-lovers to connect to the Arctic in different ways.  And the works expand well beyond the gallery walls.
