Tickets are now on sale for the remaining two lectures of Sense of Place – Season 9. Click here to access online tickets for both installments, or drop into the gallery at Columbia Center for the Arts to pick up pre-sale.
Coming up on Monday, April 1 (rescheduled from February 13) is Schemes, Dreams and Teams with Kevin Gorman. As we cannot close the door to the Gorge, Friends of the Columbia Gorge Executive Director Kevin Gorman explores steps to protect the beautiful areas we are all drawn to, and think through our impacts as explorers, travelers, and stewards. Can we develop practices to replenish ourselves and the Gorge at the same time? Join Kevin for a dive into history, conflict, and how technology might help all of us keep the Columbia Gorge wild and beautiful for generations to come.
Season 9 wraps on Wednesday, April 10 with Along the Columbia; Discovering the Architectural Heritage of Our Gorge Towns led by architectural historian Ellen Shapley. Our towns are outdoor, living museums, a feast for the eyes, accessible daily, open 24/7 and free of charge. Join us for a talk which will prepare you for your next, more observant walk, run, ride, or drive through the streets of your Gorge town or your home town!
Thank you to our patrons, sponsors, volunteers, and staff for allowing this series to thrive. See you soon!
