Immigrants, refugees and other newcomers invited to share their stories through art

ANCHORAGE, ALASKA – March 8, 2017 – The Anchorage Museum is hosting a series of six free art classes, in locations across the city from March through May, for people who have lived in Anchorage less than three years.
