Kavitha George hosts on Friday, December 7, 2018.
Artist Sarah Campen will preview her show “the Rolodex Project//On Leadership” – an interactive installation that explores leadership values through video, movement, and sculpture.
We’ll talk with the Girls on the Run program about Saturday’s 5K.
And we’ll meet the Juneau Artists Gallery’s featured artist Christine Lewis.
Some highlights for First Friday Gallery Walk:
- The Kenai Peninsula Borough School District performed admirably after southcentral Alaska's magnitude 7.0 earthquake on Nov. 30, according to the borough mayor. But he says there's room for improvement.
- Alaska has a program that helps schools around the state pay for internet. However, the need for faster internet is outgrowing the program, and the divide is even wider for rural schools.
- Anchorage is beginning to calculate what all the damage from last month’s earthquake will cost the city. The best guess so far is $30 million.
- The Dunleavy administration's budget doesn't include funding to pay back residents for the reductions in permanent fund dividends from the last three years.
