Juneau artist Sharron Lobaugh honored at Mendenhall Glacier
JUNEAU, Alaska, June 21, 2017–Family of the late artist Sharron Lobaugh gathered at the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center on June 17 to remember the long-time Juneau artist who donated her artwork for the 2017 season pass. Sharron passed away this past March.
A framed appreciation to Sharron, which includes her picture and a thank you note, hangs in the foyer of the visitor center, where it will remain for the duration of the summer.
The center’s displays of admiration and gratitude for Sharron’s contribution were well received by the family members in attendance. “Grandma loved the glacier and this pass is a lasting legacy of her art,” said Talon Lobaugh, her grandson.
The Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center plans to continue featuring local artists’ work on season passes. “We want to keep our Juneau community involved at the glacier, and artists provide an essential connection between people and this special place,” added Neary.
