A Vanport Mosaic "Out of The Box" Exhibit
Curated by Laura Lo Forti and Greta Smith
Designed by Paste In Place

September 28 - October 5

Oregon Historical Society
1200 SW Park Ave, Portland, Oregon 97205

Walking through Delta Park, you'd never guess that the second largest city in Oregon, home to over 40,000 people, once stood there. Come explore the history of Vanport, its vibrant community, and the flood that in 1948 displaced it.

Mixing archival photographs and historical records with personal testimonies of former residents, this pop-up exhibit presents the multifaceted story of Vanport and its vibrant community. It is a story of migration, housing, displacement, and perseverance.

Do you want to bring the exhibit to your school, community-based group, public or private event? Drop us a line at info at vanportmosaic.org<mailto:info at vanportmosaic.org>.


Do you own an old barn or have a love for them? Then join us and fellow barn enthusiasts for the 5th Annual Heritage Barn Workshop!

Learn about practical solutions from experts on how to maintain, rehabilitate, and adapt old barns for today's needs. Learn about the history and technology of barns as well as barn maintenance, adaptive reuse, and preservation. The workshop will also highlight funding options available for owners of heritage barns in Oregon.

Heritage barns remain an iconic symbol of rural America and our agricultural heritage. Just as the number of heritage barns decreases, so does the number of skilled craftspeople with working knowledge of barn preservation and restoration. Restore Oregon has pulled together some of the state's remaining and most well-versed "barn people" to share their skills and expertise with other barn owners.

The Annual Heritage Barn Workshop will be held in Union at the OSU Eastern Oregon Agriculture Research Center's red brick headquarters on the research center grounds. Restore Oregon has partnered with the Eastern Oregon Visitors Association, Oregon State University Extension, Wallowa County Chamber of Commerce, Wallowa County Grain Growers Baker County Tourism to provide this exceptional educational opportunity.

Event Details:
Saturday, October 7, 2017 from 9am - 3pm
Cost is $10 per ticket, includes snacks, beverages, lunch, and parking
Held at OSU Eastern Oregon Agriculture Research Center in Union
372 S 10th St.
