In 2015, local wildlife artist Michael Boardman spent 2 weeks as the artist in residence in Glacier Bay Alaska. He spent time studying the wildlife and unique geology of the park with scientists and wildlife biologists. On Tues, May 19th he will give a presentation on the park, its wildlife and the experience of creating art in such an inspiring environment.
