New Online Museum Exhibitions

This is the last week to visit our decorative arts exhibition "Home Is Where The Art Is" in the Moreland Auditorium. Admittedly, low resolution photos are a poor substitute for seeing the real thing, but if you can’t visit the museum this week you might enjoy seeing the online exhibition at http://www.bentoncountymuseum.org/exhibitions/Decorative_Arts. Researchers in Michigan and Lincolnshire, England were pleased to find examples of O.H. Copson’s paintings on our web site, so it is satisfying for us to fulfill our mission as "we explore with our visitors the dynamics of our region in relationship to the world".

This week we added a new online museum exhibition called “Tale of Two Colleges: Philomath College and College of Philomath”. Soon we will also have an online counterpart to the upcoming Quilt County exhibition in celebration of Oregon’s heritage.

Please keep checking back to our web site for more fun historical facts, anecdotes, featured artifacts, and online exhibitions. Thank you Susan Christie for assisting with our web work.
