Mini Exhibit
Oregon through Kathryn Gunnell's Eyes

An Exhibition of Moving Pictures
Friday, April 17 - May 17, 2015, Free with museum admission
In the 1930s, Salem-based photographer Kathryn Gunnell took up her camera to help promote Oregon. Through the emerging media of motion pictures, she travelled the state to capture its natural beauty. The films were then sent out in a touring car to help promote tourism to the state. Her film collection, being digitized now, provides a unique record of the state as she saw it.
