The Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Oregon’s third largest art museum celebrates the creativity of the human spirit as expressed in the art of different cultures, places and times.

Located near the Oregon State Capitol in the heart of Salem, the museum’s collections reflect the rich Pacific Northwest culture and explore the history of art around the world.

Special exhibitions range from classical works to modern masters, while the permanent galleries feature works by Pacific Northwest and Native American artists as well as a diverse collection of Ancient, European, American and Asian art.

Farewell to our dear friend
Rick Bartow (1946-2016)

The Oregon art community lost one of its most beloved artists and friends on April 2nd, when Rick Bartow passed away after a long illness.

John Olbrantz, the Maribeth Collins Director of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art, says “Rick was one of the most important artists of our region, creating wonderful and evocative art that combined contemporary studio practices with Native American imagery. There was an intense immediacy and honesty to his artwork that I truly admired and appreciated. He was a major force within the art community who forged meaningful and lasting bridges between the native and non-native communities. He leaves a remarkable artistic legacy through his archives and art, not only at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art, but across our entire region and country including the National Mall in Washington, DC.”

Rick will be deeply missed, but he will live on forever through his truly powerful and profound art.
