Friday is the Kodiak Arts Council’s third First Friday Art Walk. Kate Helligso is the program coordinator for the council and said February’s walk won’t feature as many locations as there have been in the past.
This time, however, Helligso said the arts council is teaming up with the Kodiak Public Library Association to put on an "altered book show" as part of the walk.
Kelly Longrich helps plan events for KPLA and said the intent behind the show was to inspire different kinds of creativity from the community.
Erin Harrington is the chair of the association and said the altered book show will hopefully encourage community members to think of new ways to recycle or repurpose their old books.
The show will be judged according to five different categories, including people’s choice. Those interested in casting a ballot for that category need only stop by the auditorium foyer starting at 5 p.m. The altered book show is just one venue to check out. Harborside Fly-By, Northern Exposure Gallery and the Baranov Museum are also participating and will feature local artists’ work. The walk will wrap around 7 p.m.
If it’s the First Friday, it Must Be Time for a Walk
