ART AND SCIENCE – Master carver Tommy Joseph spins a 12-foot yellow cedar pole he carved for the Sitka Sound Science Center, during an unveiling ceremony Saturday morning next to the Sage building on Lincoln Street. The sculpture, which was funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, depicts sea creatures that live in Sitka Sound. Metal worker Mike Litman built the rotating base for the pole. Joseph explained at the unveiling that by rotating the sculpture all sides will get an equal exposure to the prevailing wind and rain. (Sentinel Photo by James Poulson)
