ABOUT PORTABLE SOUTHEAST: Portable Southeast is an exhibit inspired by life in coastal Southeast Alaska. Featuring 25 works of art from artists across Southeast Alaska, the exhibit builds virtual bridges between communities - offering new opportunities for artists to showcase their work, and bringing art to non-traditional spaces. The Call for Art was open to all Southeast Alaska residents, and five curators from across the region reviewed submissions and accepted pieces into the final show. The twenty-five pieces exhibited will travel to six communities to be displayed including: Ketchikan (January); Petersburg (February); Sitka (March); Haines (April); Yakutat (May); and Juneau (June).
