The Oregon Historical Society will be opening a new exhibit on Oregon Architect Pietro Belluschi which will run June 18- August 27 at the Oregon History Museum.  For more information on the exhibit click here.

Pietro Belluschi designed many prominent buildings in the Salem area, including the old YWCA addition (now owned by Willamette University), the Comm. Center at the Oregon State Hospital (pictured below), Baxter Hall at Willamette University and the Marion County Courthouse, just to name a few.  The newest edition of the Oregon Historical Quarterly (Summer 2012) has an article by Belluschi’s son Anthony reflecting on his father’s work.
