Exhibit in the Interstate Firehouse Cultural Center Gallery

Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, 6-7:30 pm; and Sundays at 1:30-3 pm
As a companion to 7 Guitars, PassinArt is pleased to host Racing to Change: Oregon’s Civil Rights Years exhibit, the Oregon Black Pioneers first Pop-Up Kiosk based on its highly successful 2018 exhibit at the Oregon History Museum. It illuminates the Civil Rights Movement in Oregon in the 1960s and 1970s, a time of cultural and social upheaval, conflict, and change. The 10-foot-long, double sided kiosk features text and pictures that tell the story of the Black power movement in Oregon as it played out in communities, colleges and activist organizations. It challenges the viewer to examine the unfinished business of civil rights in Oregon.
