The summer exhibit is CEDAR. A fascinating tour through the history of cedar. Includes current work with Cedar from local artists.

Cedar has been a “Tree of Life”, providing material for many uses. Humans have approached the cedar tree with respect, skill, and knowledge. This year’s featured exhibit at the Historical Museum is titled: Cedar. Co-curated with Rivkah Sweedler, it contextualizes cedar in nature, history, and art and includes photos from the Museum’s archives, baskets, tools, and more. The exhibit includes an interactive cedar processing station that allows visitors to touch, smell, soak, and beat bark. Learn More Here: https://www.orcasmuseums.org/featured-exhibit-1.html
