Sheldon Jackson Museum

SJ Museum carver Sheldon Jackson

The Sheldon Jackson Museum houses an important collection of 19th century artifacts primarily collected by Dr. Sheldon Jackson from villages around Alaska. During the summer months, the museum hosts a visiting artist program for Alaska Native artists to study the collections and share their work with the public through artist demonstrations, lectures, and workshops.

During the summer of 2012, the museum is partnering with the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian and the Alaska Humanities Forum to focus the program on artists working with endangered art technologies such as fish skin sewing and bentwood technology.
