Poised in the North and at the edge of the Arctic, the Anchorage Museum is the venue for sparking ideas and Polar Lab is a place of activity. The Polar Lab connects art, science and the environment. Polar Lab looks at the contemporary and future North through exhibitions and programs.
The interest in the North that preoccupied the artists of Romanticism has returned, greater than ever, but today’s artists, scientists and explorers are questioning the future of the landscape.
The North is a vibrant, unlimited place. What happens up here affects what happens everywhere. Up here, we know that our extreme environment represents unprecedented change. Up here, we know that unprecedented change inspires unprecedented innovation.
Welcome to the Polar Lab.
