SOUTHERN OREGON HISTORICAL SOCIETY ANNOUNCES NEW EXHIBIT: FAR OUT! SOUTHERN OREGON IN THE 1960s

THE SOUTHERN OREGON HISTORICAL SOCIETY IS EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE A NEW EXHIBIT:
FAR OUT! SOUTHERN OREGON IN THE 1960s

 

The Southern Oregon Historical Society will open a major new exhibit of artifacts, photographs and stories illustrating life in Southern Oregon in the 1960s in a space donated by the Historic Woolworth Building. The exhibit, Far Out! Southern Oregon in the 1960s, will be open to the public from March 29 through April 27.

 

The 60s conjures images of JFK and Camelot, the Beatles and the British Invasion, mini-skirts and bell-bottoms, the rise of hippie culture and the anti-war movement, Woodstock, and the generation gap. Culture change in the 1960s came hard and fast. The tone and influence of popular music evolved with unprecedented speed. Fashion became a statement of an individual’s social, political and generational affiliation.

 

How did Southern Oregon experience the dynamic cultural changes of the 1960s? Using artifacts, photographs, film, interactive experiences, stories and interviews with Southern Oregonians who experienced the ’60s here, Far Out! Southern Oregon in the 1960s shines a light on topics like youth culture, civil rights, local media and the environment as mass communication and growing mobility connected people ever more closely to events and trends in the nation and the world.

 

We’re very excited to be able to bring this exhibit to our members and to the community. The exhibit team is working hard to make the exhibit and an array of associated programs a celebration of a memorable and important time. SOHS’s community partners include the Eagle Point High School Multicultural Club, Jackson County Library System, Jackson County Extension Service (Master Food Preservers, Master Gardeners, 4-H, Experiment Station) and the Craterian Theater.

 

Far Out! Southern Oregon in the 1960s will be open 6 days a week:

Tuesday, 9:00am – 4:00pm

Wednesday, 9:00am – 8:00pm

Thursday, 9:00am – 4:00pm

Friday, 9:00am – 4:00pm

Saturday, 10:00am – 4:00pm

Sunday, 12:00pm – 4:00pm

 

The exhibit space is located on the ground floor of the Historic Woolworth Building, at the corner of 6th Street and Central Avenue. Admission is free to Southern Oregon Historical Society members. The non-member admission price is $5 for adults, $3 for children 5 – 12. Children 4 and under are free.
