2nd Saturday Artwalk
The Heritage Museum will be participating in the Downtown Astoria 2nd Saturday Art Walk, March 10, 5:00-9:00 pm.
This may be your final chance to see the temporary exhibit, Behind the Bar: The Folk Art of Arvi Ostrom and the Snug Harbor as the exhibit closes soon afterward.
The exhibit features a fraction of the more than 10,000 drawings, paintings, and carvings created by Astoria's prolific folk artist and saloon operator Arvi Ostrom. Many people may recall Arvi's Union Town tavern the Snug Harbor and his "drawings", but few could imagine the breadth of his work and talent.
Upon Arvi's death in 1994, his grandson Ken Carlson became the caretaker of this vast collection. He has endeavored to preserve his grandfather's legacy and to share it with the public for the first time.
