Free Family Mornings returns for another season at Five Oaks Museum

Ghost Net Landscape at Cawein Gallery

Transform reclaimed fishing rope debris into beautiful art with Emily Miller!

Artist Emily Miller invites you into her Ghost Net Landscape.  Miller rescues mountains of colorful plastics from the sea off the Oregon coast, and turns them into huge art installations and beautiful creations. Join her at Five Oaks Museum on March 14, 2020 to create your own unique fish out of reclaimed rope!  Little ones, grandparents and everyone in between will have a chance to add to a growing school of fishes displayed in the museum’s Welcome Gallery for the rest of the month.

This event marks the launch of Free Family Morning for 2020! On second Saturdays from March through November bring the whole family for free admission and a hands-on, all-ages workshop led by local artists. Each month you can see the teaching artist’s work all month long in the Welcome Gallery, too!

Five Oaks Museum: Moving History Forward

For 64 years Five Oaks Museum, a private nonprofit organization, has worked to preserve the artifacts and narratives that define the Tualatin Valley’s unique place in the world. By collaborating with others to explore how art, culture and history shape the past and influence the future, Five Oaks helps visitors connect to a collective local history made up of community voices and the important stories they tell. The museum is ADA accessible.

Five Oaks Museum is open to the public Wednesdays through Fridays from noon to 4pm and Saturdays from 10am to 4pm.
