Art and Renovation in Ketchikan
January was a busy month on the Ketchikan Campus. On Friday, January 26, Instructor Mary Ida Henrikson and the students in “Mural: History, Function and Execution” installed a 3 panel mural in the UAS Library. This was a collaborative effort with each student involved in the painting and production of the mural.
The following day was a Renovation Celebration to mark the completion of remodeling work on the Paul and Zeigler Buildings. Speakers included Chancellor John Pugh who was in town for the occasion and former Representative Bill Williams who was instrumental in getting state funding for the work. The ribbon (actually yellow “caution” tape) was cut and the assembled crowd threw construction hats in the air. There was an open house to show off the new space throughout the afternoon.
