Selections from 'Dan DeRoux's History of Alaska' exhibit now online

Artwork from Dan DeRoux’s recent Alaska State Museum solo exhibit, “Dan DeRoux’s History of Alaska,” is now viewable online at museums.alaska.gov/online_exhibits/deroux.html.

The online resource includes photos of DeRoux’s works as well as descriptions and links to larger versions. DeRoux’s show -- which intentionally blurs the line between history and art, reality and fantasy -- includes paintings, photographs and sculpture. It was on view at the state museum May 11 through Oct. 13, 2012.

DeRoux, a third generation Alaskan, has lived and painted in Juneau nearly all his life. His paintings have garnered many awards, including a 2008 Governor’s Award for the Arts, and his work is featured in the permanent collections of museums including the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C., the Morris Museum in Augusta, Ga., the Anchorage Museum, the Alaska State Museum and the Juneau Douglas City Museum, as well as others. Public art pieces in Juneau include the mural on the new parking garage at Main and Egan (“Precipitation”), the “Encryption Wall” at Thunder Mountain High School, and the children’s mural of fairy tale characters at the downtown Juneau Public Library. Statewide, public art pieces include the giant “Focus on Statehood” mural on the Linny Pacillo Parking Garage and “The Visual History of the Natural Sciences,” mural at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
