Sealaska Heritage Institute is planning on building an Alaska Native “art park” in the Sealaska Plaza parking lot in downtown Juneau.

Rosita Worl, President of Sealaska Heritage Institute, made the announcement Thursday during the annual Juneau Economic Development Council Innovation Summit at Centennial Hall.

She presented conceptual drawings of the park, which is slated to be built ahead of the 2022 Celebration, the biennual event in Juneau that celebrates Alaska Native culture.

While nothing is set in stone, the park could feature totem poles and other large monuments with a tribal house on the property. All art will be Alaska Native pieces. The hope, Worl said, is to have the area act as both a working area and a showcase space.
