Center for Arts & History opens Timber Culture exhibit



LEWISTON, Idaho – An exhibition that explores the cultural heritage of the Pacific Northwest has opened and will be on display until Jan. 27, 2024, at the Lewis-Clark State College Center for Arts & History, located at 415 Main St. in Lewiston.

The exhibit, called “Timber Culture,” depicts the lives of loggers and their families drawn together from different cultures during the great migration, presenting an inclusive look at Oregon’s multicultural logging communities through the history of the segregated logging community of Maxville, Oregon.

The traveling exhibit, which is on loan from the Maxville Heritage Interactive Center, is on display in the Center’s first floor main gallery. A closing reception will be held Jan. 25 from 4-6 p.m.

Gwendolyn Trice founded the Maxville Heritage Interpretive Center in 2008 after discovering that she is a descendant of a logger that worked in Maxville. In the mid-1940s, Maxville became a ghost town. Now, the MHIC collects, preserves, and interprets the history of the logging community of Maxville and similar communities throughout the West.

Funding for the exhibit has been provided in part by the Idaho Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts

The Center’s gallery hours are 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Mondays, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Wednesdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. on Thursdays and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Fridays. The Center also is open on select weekend dates and by appointment.
