This week we’re hearing from Kimberlyn Sheldon, a recent graduate of the University of Alaska Anchorage’s Bachelor of Fine Arts program. With classes and graduations shifting online, Sheldon and her peers had a somewhat anticlimactic finale to their final semester. We learn what it was like to defend her thesis via Zoom, big paintings in small apartments, and what comes next.
We also hear a track from Anchorage’s Juicy Harps. They’ve been around since 2013. “IPA” was recorded Alpine Studios in Anchorage last winter.
