The Pratt Museum's new Executive Director Jennifer Gibbins has been on the job for two weeks.

Gibbins moved to Alaska from Washington, DC in 2004 and has lived in Anchorage, Seward and Cordova. She arrived into Homer just a few days before beginning work at the museum and says that finding the opportunity to live and work in Homer has been a long time coming.

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.
