Alaska House, New York, is a newly founded 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the public on the diverse artistic and cultural offerings of Alaska and improving economic conditions throughout the state, especially rural Alaskan villages---which are among the nation’s most remote locations. Serving as both a cultural center and think tank, Alaska House is the only arts and cultural center dedicated to promoting Alaska. We invite visitors to learn about the issues, challenges and accomplishments of the residents of this vast and singular state.
To that end, the mission of Alaska House is two-fold:
• To raise awareness of the critical issues and opportunities facing Alaska and its population of both indigenous and other residents;
• To support and improve the economic sustainability of Alaska Native artists through the promotion of their artwork.

I hope this finds you well! We would like to invite you to this year’s art exhibition, Boricua en la Luna, part of BORIMIX: Puerto Rico Fest 2008 on Friday, November 14th at 6pm. Curator, Miguel Trelles, and Guest Curator, Anabelle Rodriguez, have created a one of a kind group exhibition by inviting a group of visual artists to riff on Juan Antonio Corretjer’s well known poem, Boricua en la luna . This conceptual framework has led the selected visual artists to elaborate their own visual affirmation/negation/open ended response/reaction to Corretjer’s literary masterpiece.
This night will also serve as the opening reception and awards ceremony of BORIMIX: Puerto Rico Fest 2008.
The event will take place at the following address:
