EXHIBIT SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM
HELPING CULTURAL AND HERITAGE ORGANIZATIONS DESIGN AND FABRICATE AN EXHIBIT ABOUT THE OREGON STORY
The Capitol History Gateway Exhibit Sponsorship Program shares history, increases interest in government and inspires civic engagement.
Exhibits and displays at the Oregon State Capitol are part of the Capitol History Gateway. A project of the Oregon State Capitol Foundation, the CHG programs, such as exhibits and events, are part of the Capitol visitor experience. The Capitol’s Visitor Services Department implements and administers the CHG program.
The Capitol Foundation supports cultural and heritage museums in telling their stories at our Capitol and communities throughout Oregon. In the last five years, exhibits and displays have become more focused on telling stories specific to Oregon history. Many of the inspiring stories have ties interwoven with democracy or government.
Thanks to our donors and purchasers of Pacific Wonderland license plates, the Capitol Foundation awarded nearly $9,000 in exhibit sponsorships to Nordic Northwest, the Josephy Center for Arts and Culture and the Hellenic-American Cultural Center and Museum. All three groups will receive additional funds to create virtual displays to share until they can display their physical exhibits at our Capitol when the 1938 building reopens in 2025.
