The Juneau Arts and Humanities Council (the Council), incorporated in 1973, is the official arts and humanities agency in the City and Borough of Juneau, Alaska (CBJ). The Council operates the Juneau Arts and Culture Center (JACC) and Centennial Hall facilities under agreements with CBJ to foster a vibrant arts and cultural environment and enhance the local economy.

Our mission is to cultivate vibrant arts and cultural opportunities in our community and foster a strong, prosperous, and inclusive environment where creativity and innovation thrive.

The Council exists and undergoes operations on the unceded territories of the Áakʼw Ḵwáan on Lingít Aaní, also known as Juneau. The Lingít Peoples have been stewards of this land since time immemorial, and all work done by the JAHC will be done in close partnership with Indigenous communities.

First Friday brings a whole new exhibit to the Arts Council Gallery!

We are excited to showcase Portable Southeast traveling art exhibit for the month of June! Our staff has worked so hard at bringing this show to fruition, and it has been years of dreaming, talking, and planning... and a whole lot of packaging, shipping, and hard work! We are so grateful to all of the Portable Southeast artists with trusting us with their work.

Make sure to swing by the JACC and see artwork from an amazing group of artists in Alaska. This is the last stop of this exhibit. Sales are open and artwork is ready to be brought into your lives.

This traveling exhibit is made possible with support from the Alaska State Council on the Arts.
