Blue salmon

You've heard of Pink salmon, Red salmon, and Silver salmon.

But, have you ever heard of Blue Salmon?

Well, we have that in Kodiak.

And it's a big one, for sure.

It was a combination art project.
The high school's aluminum welding class made the frame for it.
And it was a work of art in itself, under all that plastic.

The plastic was collected during beach cleanup events,
from things that washed up on shore.
The art class put it all together.

And it looks like those interested in the local
native Alutiiq language also participated in educating us
and making something to visually enjoy, from what others have discarded.
