Worl skates into the Burke Museum

The Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture in Seattle recently opened an exhibit called “Here and Now: Native Artists Inspired.” Among the new works by contemporary artists are two skateboard decks that Juneau-based Tlingit artist Rico Lanáat’ Worl designed and painted. KTOO’s Scott Burton visited Worl at his store in Juneau and produced this artist profile.

“Here and Now” will be exhibited at the Burke through July 2015. Other regional Native artists in the show include Tsimshian artists David A. Boxley and David R. Boxley, Haida artists Lisa Telford, Evelyn Vanderhoop and Christian White and Tlingit artists Alison Bremner, Shgen George and Tommy Joseph.
