  • Alaska Museum of Natural History
    With its craggy mountains, monochrome tundra, and verdant valleys, Alaska itself stands as a monument to the beauty and power of nature. Focusing on the state's prehistory, the Alaska Museum of Science and Nature's sprawling collection of artifacts educates the public with engrossing and educational dioramas and displays. Among the museum’s notable exhibits is its newest installation, Ice, which delves into the profound geological changes wrought by the last Ice Age. Likewise, the Schmidt Mine exhibit lets visitors touch and pick up craggy specimens from the collection, including meteorites and fluorescent stones. Ancient mammoth bones and fearsome saber-tooth tiger jaws show patrons the fauna encountered by Alaska's first human inhabitants, whereas fully assembled dinosaur skeletons transport viewers even further back in time, way before the Jurassic Park movie came out.

  • Apogee Studios
    Apogee Studios has a confidence that was built over 20 years of adjusting apertures and framing snapshots. Within the storefront studio or on location at a favorite park or busy intersection, flashbulbs illuminate high-resolution images of families, children, engaged couples, models, and other subjects in custom photo-shoot packages. A complimentary phone consultation tells muses what to wear and bring, and the fruits of each session arrive on doorsteps in the form of glossy prints or in inboxes as online galleries, which supply retouched shots ready to use in online profiles.

  • Anchorage Daily News News/Editorial
    In 1946, just after the end of World War II, Norman Brown hand-set the type and hand-fed a Linotype press to roll out the first 16-page issue of the Anchorage News. Over the following decades, the publication changed its moniker to the Anchorage Daily News to account for its shift to daily delivery and stocked its trophy cabinet with two Pulitzer Prizes for Public Service, cementing its regard in the minds of Alaskans. Today, the newspaper lands on more than 50,000 doorsteps each week. The freshly printed folds contain the latest local news, from political updates on the debate over offshore drilling to explanations of how the school system is developing a new math curriculum to help children count past 20 without using each other’s fingers and toes. The sports section keeps up with the Aces’ triumphs, whereas the outdoors pages cover the Iditarod and the latest goings-on at Denali National Park. Readers can also gain insight into the business world, challenge their outlooks with editorials, and peruse entertainment articles before deciding to go see a local improv group or movie.

  • Focus: Art
    Faith Kelly believes that “there is an artist waiting to get out in everyone,” so she founded Focus: Art to give people the tools to find that latent artist. Like its parent organization, Focus, Inc., Focus: Art's goal is to serve people with developmental disabilities. But it also exposes adults to the arts in an environment where everyone can get along, even though they may “think differently or perceive the world differently.” Focus: Art currently runs four art classes a week. During the first half of each 2.5-hour session, budding artists work on art projects in a variety of media, including painting, printmaking, and sewing. Then, after a tea break, they pull out guitars, homemade maracas, and drums to make music together. These art projects and jam sessions both inspire community and demonstrate new, creative ways to connect with the world. To celebrate Earth Day, for example, Focus: Art students designed and constructed an applique quilt. During a month of classes, artists designed their squares on paper and recreated them in fabric. Each square contains landscape art such as shining suns and leafy trees. Recently, they have worked with mixed media, gathering trash, twigs, pebbles, and buttons to build textural collages on canvas. Over time, the artists’ work begs to be shown—and purchased—so Focus: Art hosts art shows four times a year to showcase their painting, photography, and sewing projects.
