SHI announces winner of Celebration 2024 Art Contest. Five other entries were chosen for honorable mentions.

An artist from Seattle has won Sealaska Heritage Institute’s (SHI) competition to visually represent this year’s Celebration, a huge, dance-and-culture festival held every even year in Juneau since 1982.

The artist, G̱at X̱wéech (Nick Alan Foote), won with his piece “Sacred Embrace,” which was inspired by the Celebration 2024 theme, “Together We Live in Balance” – which incorporates multiple significant concepts.
