Local artist, humorist, public radio host, musician, author, and all around creative person Jeff Brown was awarded the 2011 Governor’s Award for Arts & Humanities, Lifetime Achievement, on Oct. 19 in Anchorage. The Juneau Arts & Humanities Council and KTOO invite the community to join in a celebration of this award between 5 and 7 p.m on Monday, Oct. 31, at the JACC. There will be some treats and probably some tricks befitting the occasion. Costumes are encouraged.
Brown will bring a large collection of his artwork, including hundreds of post-cards, many never distributed in the United States, along with several one-of-a-kind hand-colored photographs, framed prints, flat images, and more for sale with the proceeds to benefit the Juneau Arts and Humanities Council Fine Arts Scholarship Fund.
