A visit to the MAC (NW Museum of Arts and Culture) & Campbell House

 I haven't been to the museum in ages but decided to go on Sunday. The exhibits were nicely curated, well displayed and lit. The showing of work by Louis Comfort Tiffany is beautiful. Always interesting seeing how many different mediums he worked in and his mastery of all of them. An exhibit of canoes from the annual Columbia River Canoe trips by the United Tribes of the Upper Columbia tells one of the many stories of the original inhabitants of our area. The permanent art collections of artwork introduced me to some artists I had not heard of but really liked. The Campbell house is maintained as it would have looked at the turn of the 20th century. The displays of furniture and artifacts allows you to experience it first hand. Period clothing and furs show you what the original inhabitants would have been wearing during that time. The museum is for everyone, a place where you can be introduced to your history, understand where you came from. If you've not gone, go and learn what helped form what we are now.
