Oregon has repeatedly led the nation in creating, revising, and implementing laws shaping the quality of life of its citizens. While Oregon’s innovations have evoked controversy, they have charted the course for other states and nations. The 16 exhibit panels highlight groundbreaking legislation that Oregon has passed since Statehood either by Politician, Legislative Action, or Public Initiative. Arranged chronologically, the window panels present legislation that focuses on environmental, social, and land use issues.
Adapted from the Summer 2014 exhibition, "Clink! A Taste of Oregon Wine," the Oregon Historical Society has developed a traveling version of the exhibition which includes twelve colorful banners with photographs and text illustrating the history of the flourishing Oregon wine industry. Two iPads with stands provide digital interactive experiences to complement the graphics. Visitors may scroll through and view wine-related objects dating to the nineteenth century or explore a map of the major winegrowing areas of Oregon to learn about typical wine varietals grown in each part of the state. This travelling exhibit is available for rental to historical societies and other groups in 2015.
