Living Cultural Treasures Program presents Bentwood Hat residency in Anchorage

The Alaska State Council on the Arts’ Alaska’s Living Cultural Treasures Program will present an Unangax bentwood hat residency in partnership with the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center and the Smithsonian Arctic Studies Center. The event will be on March 5-9 in Anchorage.

The public will have the opportunity to observe two Alaska Unangax master artist and apprentice teams work together on traditional bentwood hat design and construction throughout the week. The residency will be held at the Anchorage Museum, at 625 C Street.

The mission of Alaska’s Living Cultural Treasures Program is to reinforce the serious study and acquisition of traditional endangered Alaska Native art skills. The method connects traditional artists with younger generations of artists through apprenticeships and hands-on training to ensure the perpetuation of traditional, endangered Alaska Native art practices.
