A Pictorial History of Oregon: Glass Lantern Slides from the Oregon Historical Society
July 1, 2014 @ 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM
PICA, in conjunction with the Oregon Historical Society Research Library, is pleased to present a pictorial history of the great state of Oregon – from James Cook’s early coastal forays in 1778 up until and including the construction of the St. Johns Bridge in 1931. Comprised of approximately 92 glass lantern slides, this show was originally put together as an educational program by the Colonial Dames of America in approximately 1935. With the assistance of Doug Kenck-Crispin (Kick Ass Oregon History) Matthew Cowan will project the images using a Victor Stereopticon slide projector (circa 1915) and use the original text and notations to narrate the slides. This is the first public program of None of Your Funeral, a 2014 Resource Room Residency at PICA. These programs hope to explore both personal and shared histories through public exhibition of original materials.
