Alison Bremner Nax̲shag̲eit Exhibit: Midnight at the Fireworks Stand
In her solo exhibition Midnight at the Fireworks Stand, artist Alison Bremner Nax̲shag̲eit considers the ways in which western contact continues to shape Indigenous communities, from potlaches to the poverty-to-prison pipeline.
Culture is not stagnant. Through contact and the technological revolution Tlingit culture is constantly adapting, observing, and searching for its place in the world. – Alison Bremner Nax̲shag̲eit

The Alaska State Museum was established on June 6, 1900, when an Act of Congress created the Historical Library and Museum for the District of Alaska.
The Alaska State Museums (a state educational agency comprised of the Alaska State Museum and the Sheldon Jackson Museum) identify, collect, preserve and exhibit Alaska's material and natural history and provide public access to services and collections of the Museums.
The Alaska State Museums interpret and disseminate knowledge of the history of the state, its people, and its resources, and support others in these efforts. The Museums also assist and advise in the growth, development, and excellence of other museums within Alaska.
