Alaska Positive 2012 photography exhibit to close Jan. 5

Saturday, Jan. 5, will be the last day to view Alaska Positive 2012 – the Alaska State Museum’s biennial juried photography exhibit. The exhibit consists of 45 photographs reflecting Alaska’s scenery, wildlife, and people.

“Every submission to Alaska Positive 2012 reflects pride in the state’s unique culture, industry and landscape,” said this year’s juror, Holly Andres, a professional photographer from Portland, Ore. “The judging process gave me a whole new appreciation for the contemporary Alaskan experience.”

Following its display at the Alaska State Museum, Alaska Positive 2012 will travel around the state for the next two years. It will be shown at the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center from Jan. 21 – Feb. 27; the Dorothy G. Page Museum in Wasilla from May–August 2013; the Sheldon Jackson Museum in Sitka from October–November 2013; and the University of Alaska Museum of the North in Fairbanks from January–February 2014.

Regular winter hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Discounted winter admission is $3.
