Alutiiq Museum Seeks Contemporary Artwork
The Alutiiq Museum seeks contemporary artwork by living Alaskan artists for its collections. Artists are invited to submit a proposal following the instructions below. All submissions will be reviewed by our collections advisory committee for potential purchase through Rasmuson Foundation's Art Acquisition Fund. This is a grant funded program. Items that meet the museum's collecting goals, selection criteria, and interest will be featured in a proposal to the fund. Selection for the application process does not gaurantee a sale to the museum. This process can take several months.
Artists are encouraged to submit any item of visual artwork. However, the museum is especially interested in collecting regalia. For examples of the artwork purchased through this program please visit our contemporary art gallery.

Each year we receive many requests from students and professionals interested in broadening their experiences with an internship in Kodiak. While the Alutiiq Museum does not have a paid internship program, we are pleased to work with volunteer interns.
