AE Capital City Weekly We asked people from Petersburg, to Wrangell, to Skagway to the Governor's Mansion for their "bright moments of 2017." Read on for the diverse, inspiring list.

Artists, writers and community members choose their “bright moments” of 2017

Tlingit weaver Lily Hope wears the Chilkat robe she wove while an artist in residence at Sealaska Heritage during a public transfer ceremony May 30, 2017, in the clan house of the Walter Soboleff Building. The robe is now at the Portland Museum of Art. The museum commissioned the robe from Hope for its exhibit “The Art of Resilience: The Continuum of Tlingit Art,” which highlights the teaching lineage of four weavers: Cora Benson, Jennie Thlunaut, Clarissa Rizal (Hope’s mother) and Hope. At center right is Hope’s husband, Ishmael Hope, dancing in a Chilkat tunic woven by Benson.  Photo by Nobu Koch, Sealaska Heritage
