Overview

A bustling community center all year 'round, the Juneau Arts & Culture Center (locally known as "the JACC") is home to the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council Gallery featuring monthly exhibits by regional artists, the Lobby Shop, filled with unique local artwork, music, and books, and serves as a venue for performances, parties, meetings, and presentations. Built in 1959 as the National Guard Armory, the facility has been operated by the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council for the past four years as a place to showcase, support, and encourage the arts in Juneau. Visitors will find the unusual, the oddball, and the unexpected here. During the summers, the Rock Around the Block parties on Friday evenings offer live music, dancing, food, vendors, produce, and arts and crafts, during the winter expect to find everything from cabaret to miniature golf. You can even wave to your friends from the live web cam: Let them see you in Alaska!

I enjoyed seeing the local art display. There were photos from a previous raku firing and those pots were on display and available to purchase. I like to support local artist so I made a purchase.

This gallery seemed like a community center on a Monday morning. I felt that if I lived here, I would find myself spending a lot of time in this center. The people working there were Alaska natives and knew a lot about the town and...More

This basically is a trailer being used as an art gallery attached to a larger venue to host events. The staff is very friendly and the price is right, free.

The JACC offers a tremendous range of arts and entertainment events in Juneau both in terms of quality and quantity, truly rivaling the offerings of much larger cities. But here in Juneau you can sea kayak, hike a mountain and then take in a world...More

We love the Juneau Arts and Humanities gift shop, full of great books for children, gift cards, jewelry and calendars for adults and some breathtaking pieces by local artists on display - some on sale.

Nice little gift shop with unique local artists. Sure beats the crap sold near the docks. Hard to find local art there.
