Exhibitions

  • AgriCulture: The Washington County Museum is excited to announce a new exhibit, AgriCulture, which will be open to the public from September 27th, 2018 through May 30th, 2019. This exhibit explores the ways in which food cultivation shapes the lived experiences of people in the Tualatin Valley. A collection of personal narratives from historic and contemporary community members are the focal point of the exhibit, creating a sort of dialogue across time, culture, and technology where individuals’ stories can speak to many facets of the field of agriculture and the complex ways in which it impacts our habits, bodies, and beliefs. Photography, video, illustration, an interactive drawing station and historical objects from the museum’s collection surround and take inspiration from these stories. Visitors will be able to touch, hear, see, and learn about agriculture and the many ways it impacts all of our lives and cultures.
