Today, a First Friday Event in downtown Anchorage celebrates the work of an artist, Charles Lucier.  Panu Lucier is his daughter, and has created this showing, at the Summit Spice and Tea Co, at 3030 Denali Street.  

Panu says her father was many things to many people, anthropologist, ungulate biologist focused on caribou, and in many ways a community organizer, long before that became a political buzzword.  She remembers the Urban Natives Unite group that her mother and father both created right here in Anchorage.

Today on Our Community, the Morning Line crew highlighted events at the Anchorage Museum and the Gathering Place at the Alaska State Fair.  

Erin Marberger, Curator of Science and Innovation spoke about some fun experiences families can participate in at the Anchorage Museum, as well as a Science Passport as a fun way to track what you've seen there.

Meanwhile, in Palmer, perfomers like AKU-MATU are proving that, while her performance can be high art at a place like the Anchorage Museum, it can also work in a less formal setting like the Alaska State Fair.

As nighttime temperatures drop, a hint of color change in leaves on local trees, and a tiny dusting on the tops of the Chugach, the signs are all there: school is back in season!  

Cook Inlet Tribal Council's Schoolyard after-school program celebrates this time, as it means the students will be back each weekday from 2pm to 5pm.
