2023 Fish First Friday


Calling Alaskan Artists!

First Friday, March 3

The Alaska Center, in support of the Native Village of Eklutna, works to see the restoration of the Eklutna River and the surrounding habitat. For 94 years, the water of Eklutna Lake has been stopped from flowing freely to the mouth of the Eklutna River, preventing the people of Eklutna from accessing this valuable resource and an integral part of their livelihoods. The Alaska Center, in collaboration with Akela Space, is seeking submissions from Alaskan artists who make work inspired by Indigeneity, conservation, salmon, and the environment for an evening of art, community, and fundraising for the Eklutna River restoration.

Submissions are open now and will remain open until February 24th. Any submissions will need to be completed by the 24th and should be delivered ready to be hung or presented no later than Wednesday, March 1st. Art is to be displayed through the month of March.

Please fill out the submission form, and be ready to include the dimensions and any needs you may have for showing your artwork. Please include a short bio as well. If you need a physical form, please reach out to [email protected].
