The Sam Fox Museum in Dillingham is home to dozens of native artifacts and pieces of native art. But Sam Fox himself was an artist never recognized during his life.
Sam Fox moved back to Dillingham in 1973 with his wife Alice and their six children. He taught carving to students throughout the area. Fox also created his own works, some of which are found in the Sam Fox Museum. Although he was well known in Alaska for his work, he wasn’t recognized for his artistic abilities until after he died. Alice Fox says that lack of recognition makes her mad.
