To examine a culture, the first places to look are its food and music. The Pratt Museum in Homer is hosting a series of potlucks where people can share food, play music and tell stories…about local food and music. Scott Bartlett is Curator of Exhibits at the Pratt. Bartlett says they are collecting local food and music traditions.
"If you want to introduce your community to visitors and family and friends, that is what you share with them,” said Bartlett.

David Gerard is an aspiring guitar maker who passes his skills onto young students around Homer. Earlier this year, Gerard was one of three from the Homer area to receive project grants from the Rasmuson Foundation. This is the second time Gerard has won a Rasmuson grant, and he said this time, he wants to use that money to try his hand at building other stringed instruments.
