Models of planned new buildings on display at KPC

The public is invited to visit the Kenai River Campus to see an architectural scale model of the two new buildings that will be constructed beginning next summer. The models provide perspective on how the new Student Housing and Career and Technical Center will look and their orientation to the other buildings on campus.


Currently the enclosure that houses the 1 inch:20 feet scale model is located in the McLane Commons. Over the life of the construction project, the model will be moved throughout the campus to provide the most exposure possible for students and the public. Both buildings are scheduled for occupancy in August 2013.

Performance art coming to the KPC Showcase
The KPC Showcase Arts and Lecture series will feature Anchorage performance artist, poet, actor and puppeteer Brian Hutton at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 16 at KRC's Ward Building room 109. The event is free to the public and a discussion will follow the performance.

Hutton will combine two of his plays, "The Best of 20th Century Man" and "In Their Own Words: Emma Goldman and Adolph Fishcher." Hutton's "The Best of 20th Century Man" features works from parts one and two of his 2008 plays as well as new material. "In Their Own Words" looks at the story of 19th century anarchist Adolph Fischer -- Hutton's great-grand uncle -- and 19th and 20th century anarchist Emma Goldman.
