UCSD's Spin on Art

May 20, 2016

If you've been to the high school since last Tuesday, you might have noticed that the UCSD Kaleidoscope Art Show has adorned the hallways providing all passersby a feast for the eyes. Art teacher Finn Palmer curated the show which included 90 pieces of artwork from students in fifth through twelve grade.   

Tuesday evening, members from the Aleutian Arts Council stopped by to judge the works and promptly headed to the auditorium to announce the winners, as seen below:

Former Unalaska librarian Dan Masoni is being honored this week.  On Thursday, the Unalaska Public Library named a conference room for him in recognition of his contributions and leadership.

For 18 years, Masoni worked as a librarian and said he saw many changes along the way. KUCB spoke to Masoni from his home in Denver, Colorado. 

He said the school used to hire an employee to keep the school library open after the students went home, so people from the community could check out books, too.
