Students in Asia Freeman’s fall Kachemak Bay Campus painting class show their work in the Fall Student Art Showcase. The exhibit opens with a reception from 5 to 6:30 p.m. today in the Commons of the Pioneer Hall at KBC of Kenai Peninsula College. The show runs through December.


‘Assimilation’ set
for Nov. 27, 28

Bunnell Street Arts Center presents “Assimilation,” a play by Jack Dalton at Bunnell Street Arts Center Nov. 27 and 28. “Assimilation” is a dystopian play about Alaska’s boarding school history, but history is flipped. Natives run the boarding school and whites are being assimilated into Native culture. Each performance is followed by a Talking/Healing Circle and a dessert potluck to begin community dialogues about how we Alaskans can heal from this history.

Dalton said “Assimilation” is more than just a play.

“Addressing Alaska’s boarding school history, this play is recognized as a vital way for all Alaskans to come to grips with this dark chapter of our communal history, and everyone who has seen it, Native and non-Native people alike, see it as an important step in healing from this history,” he said.

Tickets are on sale at Bunnell Street Arts Center and
