The three art pieces created for the Water Soboleff Building were described by Sealaska Heritage Institute as "monumental," an adjective that applies not only to their size -- all three are believed to be the biggest of their kind in the world -- but to their significance and stature: each one represents a major new work by an internationally recognized master artist and is an important addition to Juneau artistic landscape.

Mozart was quite famous as an opera composer. In his short life, beginning at age 11, he composed 22 of them. He was only 3 when his famous predecessor, Handel, died, leaving the operatic scepter for this prodigy to carry into the next generation. Several of the 42 operas by Handel had pitted sopranos Faustina Bordoni and Francesca Cuzzoni against each other. Each had her own claque, and Handel wrote increasingly difficult music for them, giving each the opportunity to outshine the other. It was a bitter rivalry, which resulted in hair-pulling during a 1727 performance.

It's both business as normal and not - new volunteers are arriving to start their positions, but organizers are also digging through the annals of VISTA history as they prepare to celebrate the program's anniversary. Along the way, they're finding historical events largely lost to time - in one of those events, 55 VISTA volunteers were kicked out of the state in 1970 for supporting Native land claims.
