Staff members are currently working on upcoming exhibitions and programs. Our Gallery will host several traveling exhibits throughout the year. Most recently, HREI showcased a traveling exhibit created by the Oregon Cultural Heritage Commission. Uprooted: Japanese American Farm Labor Camps during World War II debuted as a photo-heavy exhibition that coincided with the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II and offered a visual insight into the lives of Japanese Americans living in internment camps during the Second World War. There is also a local element to this as well, since the photographs were taken in camps in Oregon and Idaho. Look for future upcoming exhibits to be listed under our Events and News page.
