Legacy May 3 through September 28

Exhibit runs through 2019-09-28

Opening Reception: May 3rd, 4:30-7:00pm

Legacy is a collection of paintings by Christianne Carrillo which illustrate the impact of plastics on our environment. Blending her love of anatomy and art, Christianne would like to open the discussion of the legacy human beings will leave on Earth: "When all Earth’s creatures have gone. our legacy will always remain: plastic."

Christianne was born in the Philippines and came to the U.S. at the age of seven. After furthering her education in Las Vegas, Portland and spending some of her adulthood in the Bay Area, she has found her way back home to Juneau. Realizing there is a lot of work that the community could be doing to preserve nature, Christianne has made it a goal to become a more involved person. Legacy represents her commitment to this goal.

This summer, the City Museum will seek to answer a frequently asked question by our summer visitors:

“What is it like to live here in winter?” In response, the exhibition, The Rhythm of Winter: What We Do in the Cold and Dark will illustrate the history of the indomitable Juneau spirit by showcasing what we do in winter, past and present. Historically, Juneauites strive to find joy in all manner of activities from outdoor sports, such as skiing and ice skating, to indoor activities, like basketball and theater.

Come visit the Juneau-Douglas City Museum this summer for a snapshot of how our Juneau community spirit brings us together and sustains us through the long winter months.
