Talk on the Rock is KSTK’s live call-in show. Every Tuesday at 1pm we welcome a local guest to discuss events and topics of interest to our little island town. For this week’s episode, host June Leffler spoke with Keeleigh Solverson and Cyni Crary with the Nolan Center. The center acquired a traveling exhibit of some of the first photographs of Wrangell, Sitka and Fort Tongass. The exhibit, 1868: Muybridge In Alaska, displays 16 photos taken by Eadweard Muybridge as a federal photo project. And these photographs are not what you’d expect. These photographs, called stereograms, require a viewfinder to display a 3-dimensional image. Keeleigh and Cyni say the exhibit illustrates both Wrangell’s past and the beginning of photography.
The exhibit will officially open on July 16th with a kick-off reception at 6PM. The exhibit’s curator, Marc Shaffer, and local Virginia Oliver will speak at the opening.
