Pratt Museum

The museum presents Marian Becks Merged Lifestyles of Kachemak Bay.

Historic Walking Harbor Tours run all summer at 3 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Meet on the Spit at the Pratt Wheelhouse near the Salty Dawg; cost is $5 per person. Join a museum docent to walk the historic docks of the Homer Harbor while hearing stories of local history and seeing a memorable array of local characters and boats of all types.

The museum will hold a themed quilt show, History in the Making: Quilts, Quilters and their Stories, from Nov. 9-Dec. 30. Quilters are invited to create works that reflect our rich, shared local history or their own personal connection to this place. Each quilter will be asked to include a brief statement about their personal quilting history and the story of their piece. Quilts or wall hangings can be hand quilted, machine quilted or tied. All styles and techniques are welcome.

Works must not exceed 72 inches in length or width. This is not a juried contest. Quilters should notify Pratt Museum Curator Holly Cusack-McVeigh of their intent to participate no later than Sept. 1. Quilts need to be delivered for installation on Nov. 5, between 9-11 a.m. For more information call 235-8635.
