at Creamer's Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge
My deepest and most sincere gratitude to the community sponsors that made this public artwork possible.
In February of 2020, the Alaska Chapter: Awesome Foundation awarded Somer Hahm grant funding to complete a barn quilt at the historic barn at Creamer's Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge.
With generous community support and funding from the Friends of Creamer's Field, Design Alaska, Johnson River Enterprises LLC., the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, and an Individual Artist Award from the Rasmuson Foundation, the "Flying Geese" barn quilt was created at an Artist in Residence on site at the Migratory Waterfowl Refuge and installed August 21, 2020 at the Sandhill Crane Festival.
The “Flying Geese” barn quilt at the historic Dairy Barn at Creamer’s Field is the cornerstone of the Far North Quilt Trail, becoming the starting off point for a citywide scavenger hunt for public art.
