The Alaska State Library, located in the State Office Building, is currently featuring an exhibit of artwork by Mostapha Beya. The show will remain on view through June 30.
Beya had his first art exhibit in Juneau in 2003. He later joined the U.S. Army as a combat translator and traveled through Europe, Africa and Asia. Beya says he paints to express his feelings, emotions, and conflicts about war, life religion and other cultures.
The Alaska State Library is open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays, and until 6 p.m. on Thursdays.
