Posted by OCVA / January 20, 2011

North Coast history, theater, and photography buffs can enjoy dramatic readings of famous photographer Dorothea Lange’s field notes during a photo presentation and lecture presented by the Cannon Beach History Center and Museum. David Millholland, David Horowitz, and Gloria Meyers will visit Cannon Beach to showcase 48 of Lange’s striking photos in a free presentation.

The night will begin with a dedication reception for the new temporary exhibits, “Images of Oregon’s Depression: the Crash, Recovery, and Revitalization of the West,” and the seasonal quilt show “The Depression through Quilts.” Light snacks and beverages will be served at 7 p.m., and visitors will get a private showing of the new exhibits, and a chance to ask questions of the evening’s lecturers, which are representing the Oregon Cultural Heritage Commission (OCHC).

This event is free and open to the public. The Cannon Beach History Center is located at the corner of Spruce and Sunset, off Hwy 101 at the Sunset Blvd exit.
