Open Thread – Juneau State Museum
Any Mudflatter who’s been around awhile knows that if there’s one thing I can’t resist it’s a museum. I have a great time inside museums when I can find someone who will indulge me, and even if I have to go it alone. I stopped in at the State Museum in Juneau a few days ago, and took some shots of the things that struck me, so you all could go on a virtual museum walk with me.
This was one of the first pieces I saw, and I fell in love with it immediately. Then I looked and recognized the name of the artist – Evon Zerbetz. She’s been one of my very favorite Alaskan artists for a long time. I particularly love what she does with ravens, so it was a delightful surprise when I realized she’d done this one.
And guess what piece of art happens to be on the artist’s home page? (Spoiler Alert! You’re looking at it!)
I hope you enjoy our little walking tour of the State Museum in Juneau. Stay tuned for more.
