Master Carver Wayne Price will share stories Thursday night about long travels in his canoe.
Price — a renowned artist and current associate professor of Northwest Coast Arts and Sciences at University of Alaska Southeast — will take the stage at the Father Andrew P. Kashevaroff Alaska State Library, Archives and Museum at 5:30 p.m. Thursday.
He’ll talk about creating his Jibba canoe and the journeys he’s made with it. The canoe is on display in the APK Atrium at the museum. Price is known for his totem poles, masks and canoes, and is currently working on a healing totem pole for Juneau’s domestic violence shelter, Aiding Women in Abuse and Rape Emergencies (AWARE).
The event is sponsored by the Friends of the State Library, Archives, and Museum.
