Join us for a celebration of Oregon's living traditions, featuring performances and demonstrations by master artists from around the Willamette Valley. Bring your lawn chairs and enjoy this outdoor program connecting across our collective heritages.
Marjan Anvari is a master artist and art conservator of tazhib, a traditional Persian form of gold illumination dating back to the 3rd Century. Mathematically precise and aesthetically ornate, tazhib, along with calligraphy and miniature, is foundational to Iranian architecture, handcrafts, rugs, silverwares, and manuscripts.​ Since founding Negahreh Art+ Design in 2014, Anvari was a 2016 Apprenticeship awardee, and 2022 Traditional Arts Recovery Program awardee.
Included with regular admission; free for MNCH members and UO ID card holders. Show your Oregon Trail or other EBT card for an admission discount.
Oregon Culture Nights showcase the work of master artists from the Traditional Arts and Apprenticeship Program, an initiative of the museum's Oregon Folklife Network.
