Worl Skates Into the Burke

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 the 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 brings us this artist profile.
