Recurring Events

Oregon State University’s Center for the Humanities is hosting an exhibition of work by Assistant Professor of Art Kerry Skarbakka titled “Blackout,” through June 8. This is Skarbakka’s second solo exhibition in Corvallis in a year. The installation is comprised of objects of art and understanding, encapsulated in the medium used to line the beds of trucks, and thus blacked out, or rendered void. Utilizing the significance of the Center for the Humanities and coinciding with the March for Science and Earth Day on April 22, the Skarbakka says the exhibition provides “a message of solidarity against attempts to defund and silence the arts, the sciences and the humanities.”

The Little Gallery proudly presents Betty LaDuke’sBountiful Harvest and Border Crossings,” April 3 – June 16. LaDuke’s wood panel murals document and narrate stories of Latino farm workers who work on farms in Oregon’s Rogue Valley. For more  information: 541-737-2146.
