"Dan DeRoux's History of Alaska" starts Friday

JUNEAU - The Alaska State Museum opens a new exhibit on Friday, May 11 - a comprehensive solo exhibit "Dan DeRoux's History of Alaska" with reception sponsored by Friends of the Alaska State Museum from 4:30-7 p.m.

For five months this summer, the museum honors DeRoux with the largest show of his career. He uses humor to paint a slightly different picture of Alaskan history, one in which the Dutch colonize Dutch Harbor, George Washington crosses the Bering Strait, and the Aleuts discover Vitus Bering in Denmark.

DeRoux has been a professional Alaskan artist since 1972. His work appears in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian and Butler Institute; and exhibited at the National Collection in Washington, D.C.
