A new exhibit on display at the Kenai Fine Art Center in Old Town focuses on Kenai’s more recent history, and features original paintings by Thor Evenson based on the town’s salmon fishing heritage. The exhibit also highlights some of the city’s historic buildings, including the art center itself which served as a center for the fire and police departments over the years.
