ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- The Anchorage Museum held a celebration Sunday, recognizing Black History Month with art, dance, and music.
Bartlett High School steppers and the African-American Club Praise Dance Team performed for the occasion. Also on display were African dolls from the museum's permanent collection and art created by students.
"Also, the Links Inc., a women's organization here in town, helped sponsor an juried art exhibit in which we were able to have high school students enter art pieces," said the group's Shelia Hall. "And that was juried, and the winner was Rochelle Wilderness."
Visitors were encouraged to use paint and recycled materials to help create a mural.
