September 2021

It's hard to believe that summer is coming to a close! We still have a few programs remaining this season, including a virtual symposium on September 25 that will explore the relationship between clothing and identity. 
Please note: We will be closed on September 5 & 6. Also, our cafe is now closed for the season. We do have picnic tables in the garden, so bring a lunch and enjoy the views!
September 1 - November 15, 2021
Since April 2020, Maryhill Museum of Art, in partnership with artist Molly Johnson and Monmouth Arts, Red Bank, NJ, connected coasts through the Exquisitely Connected Project. Artists of all ages and from all across the country were invited to create small-scale artworks that reflected their feelings during these tumultuous times.
The works were digitally connected to create a large, virtual mural. We have brought together a selection of the submitted works for an in-person exhibition. 
September 25, 2021 | 1 p.m. (PDT)
IMPORTANT: Due to Covid-19 precautions, this program is now online. If you have already registered, there is no need to re-register. You will receive an email and link to join the program. Thank you for your flexibility!
Join us for an afternoon to explore the interplay between clothing and identity as seen through Maryhill Museum of Art’s varied collections. Speakers are Simona Laiu (Romanian folk clothing), Sandra Ericson (haute couture), Steve Grafe (historic Native American attire). FREE with museum admission. 

Stonehenge Memorial Added to National Register of Historic Places

We are excited to announce that in July Stonehenge Memorial was added to the National Register of Historic Places. The National Register records the tangible reminders of the history of the United States and is the official repository for documentation of cultural resources worthy of preservation. We are honored that Stonehenge Memorial, one of the earliest World War I memorials in the country, has received this esteemed designation. 
Interested in helping support the ongoing conservation efforts at Stonehenge Memorial? We are seeking funds to preserve this important slice of history. For more information, contact Colleen Schafroth at colleen@maryhillmuseum.org or 509 773-3733 ext.23

Thank you to our current Stonehenge Memorial Donors: Architectural Resources Group (ARG), BNSF Foundation, the Hugh and Jane Ferguson Foundation, Kinsman Foundation, The Klickitat County, Historical Preservation Grant and Larry and Constance Olson in memory of Ray and Beth Olson. 


We are thrilled to announce that a second major community-based art project, The Exquisite Gorge Project II: Fiber Arts, will take place during summer 2022. 

During the project, 12 regional fiber artists will work with communities along 220 miles of the Columbia River from the Willamette Confluence in Portland to the Snake River Confluence near Walla Walla, Washington. Drawing inspiration from the people, the landscape and the river, artists will design an original fiber-based artwork in collaboration with the local community and a designated community partner.  The 11 finished works will connect to adjacent sections to create a large, 66-foot flowing sculpture with the Columbia River as a central element.
Louise Palermo, Maryhill’s Curator of Education is the Project Director. Oregon-based artists Tammy Jo Wilson and Owen Premore will serve as Artistic Director and Technical Director respectively, working alongside artists Francisco and Laura Bautista, Lynn Deal, Ophir El-Boher, Carolyn Hazel Drake, Xander Griffith, Chloë Hight, Kristy Kún, Magda Nica, Jessica Lavadour, and Amanda Triplett.
