Black in Oregon: 1840 - 1870

Jan. 15, 2021 - Feb. 20, 2021

Black in Oregon: 1840 – 1870 is an exhibition hosted at the Philomath Museum from January 15 to February 20, 2021, thanks to the City of Philomath’s Inclusivity Ad Hoc Committee and generous underwriters Cecily Feudo and Janet Nishihara. Black in Oregon was originally created by the Oregon Black Pioneers for display at the Oregon State Capitol and it highlights the lives of black pioneers who came to Oregon between 1840 and 1870. This incarnation of the exhibition features artifacts and photos from the Benton County Historical Society collection, some of which have never been publicly displayed.


No Shrinking Violets     

Jan. 15, 2021 - Feb. 27, 2021

Purple is passionate, opulent, over-the-top, regal, assertive, luxurious, mysterious, expensive, and fantastical.  It's the color of women's suffrage, Roman emperors, noble sacrifice in battle, as well as the color of princes and wizards.  The artists of High Fiber Diet (fiber and fabric artists of NW Oregon and SW Washington) have created "No Shrinking Violets" to speak their passions with a prevalent color of purple.
