Downtown Hillsboro now has its own temporary museum! “Museum at (Our Place): This IS Kalapuyan Land” is a yard sign exhibition featuring contemporary Native American artwork from an exhibition curated by Steph Littlebird Fogel at Five Oaks Museum. Visit the 10 signs located throughout Downtown and use your smartphone camera to scan the QR codes on each sign to learn more about each artist. For even more fun resources related to the exhibit, you can download the museum’s Stay Learning Guide. The Museum at (Our Place) Downtown will be up through the end of October 2020. Visit fiveoaksmuseum.org [or here] to learn more about the Museum’s other exhibits, resources, and ways to get involved!
This IS Kalapuyan Land opened in 2019 as a physical museum exhibition by Guest Curator Steph Littlebird Fogel. The exhibition prompts critical thinking around representation of Indigenous history and identity in non-Indigenous institutions. To achieve this Fogel annotated panels from the museum’s prior exhibit on Kalapuyan peoples, curated contemporary Native artwork into the exhibition, and added historical content from David G. Lewis, Phd, who is a preeminent scholar on Western Oregon tribes. The full content lives on as a virtual exhibition, [here].
