Friday, March 7, from 5 -7 pm at the Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium Foyer
Come look at altered books...what is an altered book? Alter = change. Altered books are books that people have changed into pieces of art! Books are cut, painted, sewn, folded...Kodiak has some amazing artists, and this Friday you can see the artwork!
I'll be there, and one of our students has art in the show. She loves to sew and make mosaics. Can you guess who it is?
If you can't come Friday night, the altered (or changed) books will be on display for most of March in the lobby or foyer (area in front of) of the Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium in the Kodiak High School. It's free to attend, and there are other art shows around town during First Friday Art Walk.
The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race began on Sunday. It's in all the Alaskan newspapers and online. The race starts in Willow, Alaska, and ends in Nome, Alaska. This race follows part of the route (trail) that dog mushers (people who have dog teams for transportation) used in 1925 to get medicine to Nome during a diptheria epidemic (wave of sickness).
Two fun activities are happening Friday night:
Iceland--Rugged Jewel of the North Atlantic
February 21, at 7 pm, in Benny Benson Building room 106 at the Kodiak College.
Dave Kubiak talks about Iceland in this event is hosted by Kodiak Audubon Society. Iceland is located right below the Arctic Circle--so it's farther north than Nome or Fairbanks, Alaska. Come learn about Iceland! Free.
Friday Night Movie
February 21 at 6:30 pm the Kodiak Public Library.
Come watch a romantic comedy for the romantic month of February: Sleepless in Seattle, starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. Free.
