The lectures, sponsored by ConocoPhillips Alaska, are held from 12-1 p.m. in the 4th floor boardroom at Sealaska Plaza. Attendees are invited to bring their own lunches.

In Tuesday’s lecture, “Basketry and Alaska Native Art Revival,” Haida master weaver and artist Churchill will discuss the revival of Native art during the late 20th century in communities like Ketchikan and the impact these activities have had for Southeast Alaska Native arts today. The discussion will also focus on Churchill’s own artistic experience.

The last lecture in the series, scheduled for Nov. 27, will be “Three Hundred Years of Tlingit Art” with Aldona Jonaitis, Emeritus Director of the Museum of the North. She will give an overview of the history of Tlingit artworks made in the 18th century to those created in the 21st century. Special attention will be devoted to artist elements that have been consistent over these centuries, and those that have changed.
