Stevens portrait unveiled at Alaska state museum

Portrait of late-US Sen Stevens unveiled at Alaska State Museum, will hang in Alaska Capitol By The Associated Press

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) ' An overflow crowd turned out Friday evening to witness the unveiling of a portrait of the late-U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens at the Alaska State Museum.

The $11,000 painting was commissioned by the Alaska Legislature's Legislative Council. It is destined to hang at the state Capitol.

Stevens was beloved in Alaska for his success in bringing home federal aid and projects during his 40 years in the U.S. Senate. He died in a plane crash in southwest Alaska in 2010.



Education Commissioner Michael Hanley called Stevens "one of Alaska's most ardent supporters."

A video exhibit, created just for the event, played in the background Friday, as state leaders offered praise, remembrance and thanks to Stevens' family. His widow, Catherine, also spoke and helped with the unveiling.

The artist is Dean Larson.
