"PressurePoints" for Adults and Children

Dr. Sue Taylor, assistant professor of art history at Portland State University and contributing editor for Art in America, will present an illustrated slide lecture called "Figure/body, mind and memory" Friday, Nov. 9, from 5 to 6 p.m. at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art Willamette University, Salem.

Her lecture will focus on the work of several generations of artists represented in the Museum's "Pressure Points" exhibit that runs from Nov. 10 through Jan. 5. The exhibit features 54 prints from the collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and the Jordan & Mina Schnitzer Foundation of Portland. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Also as part of the "Pressure Points" exhibit, the Museum will offer a printmaking workshop for children in the lobby of the Museum on Saturday, Nov. 17, from noon to 4 p.m. The children will explore different types of printmaking processes with the help of Willamette University graduate students. Refreshments will be served throughout the day and gallery admission will be free.

"Pressure Points" has been made possible by a major grant from The Jordan & Mina Schnitzer Foundation, with additional support provided by the Oregon Arts Commission, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the City of Salem's Transient Occupancy Tax Funds.

The Hallie Ford Museum of Art is located at the corner of State and Cottage streets in Salem. It is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is closed Sunday and Monday. Admission is $3 for adults, $2 for senior citizens and students age 13 and older. Admission is free to children under 13 and for Willamette University faculty, staff and students, as well as Museum members and school groups by appointment. Admission is free on Tuesdays. On Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. during the run of the exhibition, State of Oregon employees will be admitted for free with proof of ID.
