From February 3 – March 28, the Art of Fandom exhibition takes over the Anchorage Museum. Suitable for all ages, you’ll discover how mass pop culture is enjoyed around the globe. Utilizing contemporary art, collectibles and pinnacles of fandom subculture, it’s the perfect option for a Valentine’s Day date, family outing or solo adventure.

Here, you’ll find one-of-a-kind artifacts in anime, Japanese-inspired culture and manga. From your favorite comic books and graphic novels to “furries” and real-person fandom, what does it mean to be a “fan” these days? How does music influence fandom, and what about television shows and films?

Around the World

Artists are coming from around the globe including Japan, the UK, Australia and the Netherlands. Meet Sebastian Masuda, Cliff Wright, Red Hong Yi, Marco D’Alfonso and many more during this nearly two-month extravaganza. You’ll want to keep an eye on the Anchorage Museum’s official site for announcements of meet and greets and last-minute additions.

The Anchorage Museum is located downtown at 625 C Street. Admission is just $15 for adults and includes exhibition entry. After-hours programming on Fridays means the museum is open until 9 p.m., and this is where fans can gather to enjoy a nightly exhibition and special events.
