The Hellenic-American Cultural Center & Museum (HACCM) presents Master Penworks of Tom Stefopoulos, Hellenic Artist of the Lovejoy Columns. Mr. Stefopoulos was the artist who painted the artwork on the pillars supporting the Lovejoy ramp of the Broadway Bridge. The exhibit features photographs showing the drawings on the columns prior to the demolition. In addition the exhibit includes unique prints and originals of Mr. Stefopoulos' early penworks from the 1930s through the 1960s. Ancient Greek motifs, ancient Greek philosophers, and United States political and military leaders are among the subjects depicted by the artist.
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.
