Recently I met up with Todd Salat, a photographer that makes his living shooting the auroras. Tonight he’s chosen a peak in the Eagle River highlands to start his shift.
Being a professional aurora photographer may sound like the best job ever, but Salat says it can be shaky. It’s kind of like being a commercial fisherman.
Today we’re visiting the Anchorage Museum’s newest exhibit: “Arctic Flight.”
The first thing you see when entering the exhibit is a cherry red 1928 Stearman. And your first question might be, “How did they get an airplane to the third floor of the museum?”
Today we’re going on an art walk. Jean Bundy has been doing these walks annually for about four years in the Anchorage area. For her, it’s about discovering new and interesting artists.
Bundy belongs to a very distinguished group called the International Association of Art Critics. Only about 400 people in the entire country can boast the title, and getting it isn’t easy.
The majority of Alaskans do their fishing in the summer months, but there are some that take advantage of the peace and quiet that winter lends to their favorite fishing holes, which in most cases, are still full of fish.
Currently though, we aren’t catching anything.
The United Way of Anchorage is putting on their third annual Walk for Warmth this weekend. The event began as an effort to aid people with living costs during the winter, and to prevent homelessness.
Meghan Clemens, the project’s manager, says rent and utility assistance together the single biggest unmet need the United Way sees in Anchorage.
There’s a new dance company in town, and they’re not afraid to mix genres.
What does the Rasmuson Foundation have to do with formally dressed musicians playing in the middle of a Sitka forest?
On this edition of Town Square 49 radio, we’re making gourmet scrambled eggs with Heidi Drygas, an Anchorage food blogger. Drygas is an attorney by day, and a cook the rest of the time.
Her love for food has always been strong, but her love for cooking came later in life while she was in law school.
