Welcome to the first episode of State of Art. This week we’re talking about First Friday — what it’s like in Anchorage and what’s happening at the Anchorage Museum for August’s First Friday. We also hear from Jenni May Toro, lead singer of Anchorage band The Modern Savage.
Back in July, we asked Alaska Public Media’s Kirsten Swann to hit the streets and bring us back a taste of what First Friday in Anchorage is like.

If the downtown Anchorage art crawl isn’t your style, you can always head to the Anchorage Museum. Every month the museum has free general admission for First Friday. Ammon Swenson went to find out what’s in store for August.
