With a grant from the Rasmuson Foundation’s Art Acquisition Fund, the Alutiiq Museum has four new pieces of art, created by three local artists.
They include two mixed-media dolls made by Jacqueline Madsen, a soapstone oil lamp by Sandee Drabek, and a yellow cedar kayak water pump by Peter Lind Junior.
Marnie Leist, the museum’s curator of collections, says each piece helps tell the Alutiiq story and explores Alutiiq traditions in the present day.
The latest grant from Rasmuson is for $1,370. In the last 10 years since the charitable organization started the Art Acquisition Fund, the Alutiiq Museum has received over $110,000 to buy 87 works of art from 28 different artists. Statewide, Rasmuson has give $1.6-million to museums and cultural centers.
