State Museum Searching For New Solo Artists to Feature

The Alaska State Museum in Juneau will select six solo artists to feature in their own exhibits for the next two years. Jackie Manning, curator of exhibitions, says the State Museum would like to have a diversity of submissions from artists, native and non-native, from communities throughout Alaska.

Farewell to Our ‘16 Volunteers

Summertime at KNOM is a bittersweet confluence of happy greetings and difficult goodbyes. This month, we’re saying a final “Godspeed” to the four outstanding people who’ve just departed Nome for points south: our 2015-16 volunteers Maddie, Emily, Laura, and Mitch, who consistently went above and beyond in serving the people of Western Alaska this year.
