Description:

A bustling community center all year 'round, the Juneau Arts & Culture Center (locally known as "the JACC") is home to the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council Gallery featuring monthly exhibits by regional artists, the Lobby Shop, filled with unique local artwork, music, and books, and serves as a venue for performances, parties, meetings, and presentations. Built in 1959 as the National Guard Armory, the facility has been operated by the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council for the past four years as a place to showcase, support, and encourage the arts in Juneau. Visitors will find the unusual, the oddball, and the unexpected here. During the summers, the Sunday Market on the lawn offers produce and arts and crafts, during the winter expect to find everything from cabaret to miniature golf. You can even wave to your friends from the live web cam: Let them see you in Alaska!

This gallery seemed like a community center on a Monday morning. I felt that if I lived here, I would find myself spending a lot of time in this center. The people working there were Alaska natives and knew a lot about the town and surrounding areas. They were a great source of information. This is a great place to... More

This basically is a trailer being used as an art gallery attached to a larger venue to host events. The staff is very friendly and the price is right, free.

The JACC offers a tremendous range of arts and entertainment events in Juneau both in terms of quality and quantity, truly rivaling the offerings of much larger cities. But here in Juneau you can sea kayak, hike a mountain and then take in a world class concert or a dance company from New York and dance to a local band... More

Nice little gift shop with unique local artists. Sure beats the crap sold near the docks. Hard to find local art there.

This proactive arts group doesn't think small nor content themselves with just idling along. From the wide array of arts experiences they connect with, to the historical and social aspects of the Juneau area, to making everything accessible to people from all walks of life, this Council does more than many you will find in so-called "major" cities — and...

This is a meeting place and there seem to be a lot of different activities. I stopped in at the gift shop which has really great locally made stuff and a friendly staff. My wallet left considerably lighter after finding some neat things for hard to find people.

This is a place that is easily missed. most of the art displayed here is local, then Alaskan and then from more distant places. Very much a local promotion place where members are kept informed of the variety of art on display. A visit can experience fin e art in many forms. Yoiu can experience art in oil painting, photography,... More
