"KCASH! an Exhibit Like No Other" November 6th -25th, 2020

The In-Person exhibit is CLOSED to the public due to our community's increased risk level to the spread of COVID- 19! However please sit back and enjoy the Online Main Street Gallery beginning November 6th. Below you will see all of the submissions that First City Players and the Ketchikan Area Arts and Humanities Council chose to include in the Main Street exhibit "KCASH! an Exhibit Like No Other" With 125 List items, over 360 submissions, from 8 teams there were a lot of submissions to go through. There were many more entries than are featured here. It was a difficult process and we feel we picked images and videos that were representative of each team and the items were representative of the KCASH experience. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do, it was truly a pleasure!!! Images and videos are listed chronologically. The complete list is available to the right! 

List item #2.  Photo - 150 points - TEAM ROLL CALL (option 2)!   It's picture day!  Show us a photo collage of EVERY TEAM MEMBER.   Give it a theme and somehow show the team members interacting with each other in their photo grid…

Item #6.     Photo or Video - 100 points - Create a slug amusement park with at least one working ride.  Make sure we see a slug (and maybe friends) enjoying your park, hopefully on your ride.  NO magnifying glasses, salt, ammonia, beer, or vinegar allowed.

Item #8.     Photo - 25 points - Build a house with natural materials (rocks, sticks, leaves, etc) and show us a picture of it with its inhabitant.  If its inhabitant had to run errands and is unavailable for photos, be sure to caption the photo and tell us who lives there.
