Tiny Tours

Episode 1: Glass Fishing Floats

Since the museum is currently closed, we have decided to create a series of “Tiny Tours” of the museum’s exhibits. We hope that you enjoy and look for the next episode coming soon.

Calling All Artists – Historic Structure Challenge

When: Submission Deadline, October 10th, Show begins October 15th.

Where: Online Exhibit – www.northlincolncountyhistoricalmuseum.org

Contact: director.nlchm@gmail.com

Cost: Free!

The museum is calling on all of those who would like to participate in an online art show to be presented on the museum’s website. The theme of this art show will be historic buildings and structures of North Lincoln County (Depoe Bay to Cascade Head). Paint, sketch or photograph your favorite historic building or structure in North Lincoln County and submit a high-resolution scan or photo of your work and email it to the museum. Contact Director, Jeff Syrop (director.nlchm@gmail.com), to receive an entry form which will be submitted with your artwork. Submissions are free with a suggested $5.00 donation to help out the museum in these difficult times, but it is not required.

The entries can be of any medium and any historic building or structure of your choice. Some examples of these buildings and structures are any from the strip in Depoe Bay, the Depoe Bay Bridge, Snug Harbor, Lincoln City Glass Center (Ballard Motors), the Nelscott Strip, the Oceanlake business strip, the Dorchester House, the Drift Creek Covered Bridge or any other of your choice. Submissions are due on October 10th and the show will be online from October 15th through the New Year.

This is a very inclusive online art show, open to all art ages/levels, and mediums. We hope that this art show will foster even more appreciation for historic buildings and structures so that they will be around for the next generation to enjoy.

Thanks Oregon Humanities!

Since the museum has been closed since mid-March, our in-person giftshop sales and donation box revenue have come to a halt. We are happy to announce that the museum has received a COVID-19 Economic Relief Grant from Oregon Humanities through the National Endowment for the Humanities. This generous grant will help us purchase exhibit and curation material, a new video recorder and other equipment for virtual presentations, and will cover some operating funds lost due to the pandemic. Thanks Oregon Humanities for helping us continue to thrive during these difficult times.
