Gallery Walk at the City Museum

For First Friday on December 3rd, 2021, the City Museum will host an opening reception for an exhibit titled, Voices of the Wilderness, Artist-In Residency Retrospective. For this exhibition, the City Museum partnered with the US Forest Service to mount a show featuring artwork by former participants of the Voices of the Wilderness program who spent their residency in the Kootznoowoo Wilderness and the Tracy Arm Ford’s Terror Wilderness in the Tongass National Forest.

During the opening reception visitors will be able to meet Smokey Bear, learn about fire safety, and can try their hand at "up close" nature drawing. Kids of all ages can take home free US Forest Service activity books, and learn more about the Tongass Forest from Sean Rielly, a local Forest Service Ranger. During the opening reception there will be no refreshments served and masks must be worn at all times while inside the museum.

The Voices of the Wilderness Artist-In-Residency program is sponsored by the US Forest Service, National Park Service, and the US Fish and Wildlife Service. Artists who participate in this program are paired with a wilderness specialist during the months of June, July and August, and are actively engaged in projects which foster both artistic exploration and stewardship of America’s public lands.

Voices of the Wilderness will be on display at the City Museum through April 23rd, 2022.
