State capital seeks historical exhibits

 The Oregon State Capitol has long displayed exhibits from entities throughout the state.

The Capitol History Gateway (CHG) Program allows storytelling in “the People’s Building” through revolving exhibits curated through vetted cultural and heritage museums and organizations. Up to $7,500 is available for exhibits.

Historically those exhibits have been displayed physically at the Capitol, but for the past two years exhibits have been featured digitally on www.oregoncapitol.com as the historic building is closed for construction.   

The deadline to apply for funding is 11:59 p.m. Jan. 31, 2024.  

For more information, call Stacy Nalley at 503-986-1392, or visit https://oregoncapitol.com/events-and-exhibits-exhibit-sponsorship-program/.
