Curio Opening Reception

September 5, 2014 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Friday, September 5th

5-7pm @ The Main Street Gallery

Awesomely Kitsch Souvenirs & Utterly Tacky Trinkets! Throughout Alaska’s history, creative
entrepreneurs have graced souvenir stores with moose poop swizzle sticks, big-belly billikins,
barking huskies, kissing Eskimos, and other intriguing “treasures” and mementos. Be inspired by
the past, present, or think into the future to invent and create your own artistic idea of a tacky,
humorous, or cool souvenir: postcard, map, trinket, etc.—that perfect souvenir you think a tourist
should take home to remember their trip to the Last Frontier. All mediums welcome; no size
limitations. Your trinket should come ready to display, with instructions if needed.

Exhibit runs September 5-26, 2014.
