Renovating Gallery of Alaska

Implementation of the reinstallation of the Gallery of Alaska in the University of Alaska’s Museum of the North.

The University of Alaska Museum of the North (UAMN) requests consideration for a National Endowment for the Humanities Implementation Grant for $400,000 as well as $60,000 to support a position in public humanities. Our project fits well into the NEH award category, “Humanities and Sciences and Technology.” These funds will help us reinvent the thirty-five year old Gallery of Alaska, our flagship exhibit space. Using engaging methods of display, the 7,000-square-foot gallery will introduce 21st-century audiences to the vast, complex state of Alaska and immerse them in its natural and cultural legacy as well as its future. The new exhibit will interpret nearly 2,000 objects from our interdisciplinary, research-based collections. This is by far the largest museum collection in the state, with biological, geological, cultural, and art objects.
