SITKA – Sheldon Jackson Museum Alaska Native artist-in-residence Robert Hoffmann (Tlingit) will give a talk entitled "Where We Meet" on July 3 at 3 pm at the museum and on Zoom.
Hoffmann will look at how cultural and historical context helps us appreciate objects more fully. He will select a few artifacts from the museum’s collection to highlight this idea. Robert will also talk about the following different contexts for today’s artistic and cultural creations: political statements, cultural identification, market, self-expression, and appreciation.
A limited number of seats are available to attend the talk in-person. To reserve your spot, call the museum at at (907) 747-8981. All are welcome to attend the talk via Zoom at:
