Anchorage, AK -  Artists are immersing themselves in their work thanks to the Anchorage Museum's Polar Lab. 

The Polar Lab, allows artists from Alaska and around the world to go out into the Arctic and create a portfolio of work.
The Anchorage Museum has been awarded $570,000 in grants to help make this initiative a success.
"It gives us the opportunity to support the artists, support the programming as well as do some really neat things in the museum," said Laura Carpenter who is a Spokesperson for the Anchorage Museum.
The Polar Lab will end in 2016 when the artists present their work at a major exhibit in 2016.
