In celebration of Alaska's centennial, The University of Alaska Museum in Fairbanks offered a Special Exhibit entitled, "Burned Into Memory: Images of Alaska Through Historic Pyrography." That exhibit, which ran from 2 February to 24 March 2002, was a tribute to the artists whose moosehide and Birch bark pieces of 100 years ago recorded for posterity images of Alaska at the time of the Gold Rush.

Both the Alaska exhibit and the work of Tom Schulz, who graciously provided these images taken at the Alaska exhibit, were featured in Pyrograffiti in the March–April 2002 issue of the Woodcarvers Online Magazine.
