What is Cabin 13?
Located within Pioneer Park, Cabin #13 is believed to have been part of the original homestead owned by Dr. Young, one of the first dairy farmers in Fairbanks. It was eventually moved to Pioneer Park, host to many tourists worldwide looking for uniquely Alaskan art, from 11th Avenue. The original cabin was in such rough shape that a few years ago the current Cabin #13 replica replaced it. As much of the old cabin was saved as could be (notice the log beams) and is incorporated in this cabin.
Fairbanks Arts Association offers a unique opportunity for artists of all types to promote their art in Cabin #13 at Pioneer Park during the summer. Cabin artists share the space with other artists to display and sell their works and are obligated to work at the cabin one day per week (days can be split between artists, if you arrange such a situation).
Art objects are sold on consignment through the Fairbanks Arts Association, with the artist retaining 80 percent of the sale price. In prior years we have had artist selling jewelry, ceramics/pottery, stained glass, wool fabric products, prints, photos, books, and wearable art. Cabin #13 is open from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day seven days per week from Noon to 8:00 PM. We have few open days that could be filled, and we would love to have you!
