For the month of September Bunnell presents 10 x 10 Member’s Exhibit Taking Care. The exhibit opening is September 8th, from 5-7pm, with an artist talk at 6pm at Bunnell Street Arts Center.
“Taking Care” exhibit statement: How do artists express care for self, community, other life forms and the land? How do artists picture resilience, innovation, and healing? As first responders, artists lead as healers through their creations. In times of tension, crisis or distress, artists surface truth and create images of energy, vibrancy, and hope. The exhibition, “Taking Care,” aims to foster hope, spark joy, and nurture self and community resilience.
This exhibit is made possible with annual support by Homer Art and Frame, Thank You.
The Bunnell Arts by Air radio series features Alaska and visiting musicians in all genres and is co-produced by Bunnell Street Arts Center and KBBI to support local artists and musicians and celebrate our community.

Audience is limited to 20 and must be seated at 6:45pm to be ready for radio broadcast promptly at 7pm.
Friday, October 20th Broadcast at 7pm: Peter Mulvey has been a songwriter, road-dog, raconteur, and almost-poet since before he can remember. In 1989 he spent a year in Ireland, busking on the streets of Dublin and hitch hiking to whatever gigs he could find. Back stateside, he spent a couple years gigging through the bars of his native Midwest before taking off for Boston, where he returned to subway busking and coffeehouses. Small shows led to larger shows, which eventually led to regional and then national touring. The wheels have not stopped since. *Note: There will be no September 15, 2023 concert*
