The Kodiak Arts Scene
Green mountains rising from the sea, the magnificent Kodiak brown bear, rugged coastlines, abundant birds and wildflowers are all inspirational to the many Kodiak artists. And, of course, there is no better way to remember your trip to Alaska than with locally made art for your home or office.
Kodiak is home to a surprising number of talented visual, fiber, metal and multi-media artists. Skilled craftspeople working with fiber, leather, glass, silver, gold and other metals offer a stunning array of one-of-a-kind investments. Shops and galleries in downtown Kodiak and out Mill Bay Rd. and Rezanof Dr. display their work for your enjoyment and purchase. Coffee shops host art shows throughout the year where you can find and purchase local art. Numerous arts and crafts bazaars throughout the year provide many opportunities to purchase local and native made arts and crafts.
Russian arts and crafts are also a popular item in Kodiak and are available at the Baranov Museum as well as other local gift stores.
The Kodiak Arts Council hosts a performing arts series as well as summer art camps for children.
