JUNEAU- Sealaska Heritage Institute officials are looking for Northwest coast Native artists and fashion designers to submit original works for a fashion show next year at an auction in Juneau.


Officials say the fashion show will be a key feature at the Tinaa Art Auction scheduled for Feb. 1.


The deadline to apply as a participant in the fashion show is Oct. 7.


The art auction is a fundraiser for construction of the planned Walter Soboleff (SO'-boe-loff) Center, an educational facility named after late Tlingit (CLINK'-it) leader Dr. Walter Soboleff, who died in 2011 at age 102.


Sealaska Heritage Institute is the nonprofit cultural and educational arm of Juneau-based Sealaska Corp., a regional Native corporation.
