The Anchorage Museum’s collections exist primarily as a means of fulfilling their mission to collect, preserve, exhibit and interpret cultural materials which illustrate the art and history of Alaska and the circumpolar North. The Museum has important collections of Alaska Native artifacts, historical and contemporary artwork, and objects that illustrate Alaska's history.

The Alaska Native collections are the largest component of the Anchorage Museum’s collections. The Museum is particularly proud of its strong collection of contemporary Alaska Native art which contains works by Alvin Amason, Rebecca Lyon, Da-ka-xeen Mehner, Erica Lord, Larry Beck, Nicholas Galanin and Sonya Kelliher-Combs as well as many others.

The exhibition Place of Origin will be shown in Rovaniemi Art Museum and Luleå Konsthallen 2018-2019. The exhibition makes both art and cultural heritage of the Arctic available and enables the better understanding of Northern art. Some of the Alaska Native art speaks of the cultural heritage in a whisper; some call out in a loud, clear voice.

Seminar Indigenous Art in Arctic -semiar on 18th of October.
