Each artist will show one piece, although some works contain multiple elements, such as diptychs and sculptural arrangements that address the theme of natural disastersâ€™ effects on their communities.
This amazing exhibit was made possible by the contributions from the Western States Art Federation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the City of Valdez, the Valdez Museum, Alaska State Council of the Arts, the Rasmuson Foundation, and Alyeska Pipeline Service Co.
