Alaska State Museum to host "Culture on Cloth" lecture Friday

Posted: February 14, 2013 - 12:04am

The Alaska State Museum will celebrate the official opening of “Nunavut’s Culture on Cloth” on Friday, Feb. 15, with a lecture at 7 p.m. by exhibit curator, Judith Varney Burch. The museum is open extended hours with free admission on First Fridays beginning at 4:30 p.m.

“Nunavut’s Culture on Cloth” features three dozen wall hangings, highlighting the work of several renowned Inuit artists from the hamlet of Baker Lake in the Territory of Nunavut, Canada – a community of 1800 people located 320 miles inland from Hudson Bay.

Burch became captivated by the Inuit art of Nunavut after her first six-week stay in the Arctic. She has since become a lecturer, gallery owner, curator, and research collaborator to the Smithsonian Arctic Studies Center as well as an honorary board member of the Nunavut Arts and Crafts Association

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