H95-71-18: Art Koeninger

Art lives in a small apartment above his store, Spirit Mountain Artworks. The art store, which features primarily work by Alaskan artists, is in a restored building that was once a tinsmith's shop. The building is on the National Register of Historic Places and Art has received federal grant support for its preservation. Art is active with Chitina's Volunteer Fire Department and Emergency Medical Services. He feels strongly about giving back to the community and this is his way. On tape Art talks about what brought him to the Chitina area and the many issues, opportunities, and challenges that keep him there. Historic preservation and community service are key themes in this interview.
