The Alaska Design Forum is sponsoring three events as part of the Anchorage Museum’s Design Weekend. Design Weekend celebrates the power of place and community in Alaska and the North through a series of programs that celebrate, educate, inspire and prompt discussion about how design engenders a sense of place through visual and conceptual identity.
