January 2015

Capitalizing on the success of last year's exhibit of the same name, the Museum presents 12 new guest curators from the Juneau community who have each chosen an object from our collection that resonated with them in some way, based on their professional lives, and have written a personalized label to accompany that object. Please come see the selections and read the stories of geological engineer Mike Blackwell, diesel mechanic Larry Blatnick, Captain Wayne Carnes, editor Genevieve Gagne-Hawes, nurse Keith Goering, writer Jim Hale, chemist Michelle Bonnet Hale, miner Jerry Harmon, Dr. Emily Kane, massage therapist Melchi Nelson, accounts payable supervisor Sherry Patterson and physical therapist Patrick Ripp. The exhibit opens with a First Friday reception on January 2, from 4:30-7:00 pm.
