Happy New Year! Andy Kline was the host and we concentrated on the Arts and the January First Friday on this edition of Juneau Afternoon, including:
Pat Race of Alaska Robotics on their show concentrating on student art inspired by comic books.
Artist Rob Roys and Kimberly Naylor of the City Museum on Rob’s solo exhibit.
And from up on the mountain, we talked to Jeffra Clough and got this week’s Eaglecrest Report, where January is Learn to Ski and Snowboard month.
