Have you ever kept a diary or journal? Had the opportunity to peruse the personal writing of your ancestors? Several diaries and journals are held in the collections of the Pratt Museum: their stories range from weather reports and moose sightings to extended narrative and personal reflection. Often the written word leaves much to be imagined, and could serve as a jumping-off point for something more.
The Pratt Museum is extending a call for works of art in any medium, inspired by personal diaries or journals. The source could be your own writings, a family member’s, a willing friend, or diaries held by the Pratt. Join us for a discussion of the project, peruse Pratt diaries by Kachemak area pioneers, and get your creative juices flowing, on September 7, from 5-6pm. Art work for the exhibit is due at the Pratt on November 1, 2016, exhibit opens November 11 and runs through December 31.
