The City Museum will team up with the Juneau Arts and Humanities Council, and go to extremes by exhibiting a "sneak peek" of several wearable art entries for the 2nd Annual Wearable Art Show, "Going to Extremes II," February 8 - 21. The exhibit will also include last year's wearable art winner "Ode to Sandy Beach," created by Mary Ellen Frank, a photo collage of the winning entry photographed by Marilyn Holmes, and the opportunity to watch two wearable art videos.
The City Museum will also open "A Juneau Portrait," featuring paintings, prints and photographs from the Museum's own collections of many of our community's most interesting people spanning over 100 years.
