Source on the Scene: Discovering Your Roots at the Heritage Fair

The mission of the Deschutes County Historical Society is to preserve our region’s history and educate future generations about our past. This weekend, the Society hosted an important fundraiser at the Deschutes Historical Museum that gave visitors a chance to learn more about themselves too.

Central Oregon Daily’s Allison Roecker took the opportunity to learn more about her own family’s history for this week’s “Source on the Scene.”

Potential Impact on Museums in Central Oregon

Among the cuts proposed in President Trump’s budget plan is the elimination of an agency called the Institute of Museum and Library Services or IMLS. It’s a federal funding source for more than 120,000 libraries and 35,000 museums across the United States.

Central Oregon Daily’s Mackenzie Wilson looks at the potential impact those cuts could have on museums here in Central Oregon.

Supper Club: Supporting the Arts

The proposed federal budget from President Trump would eliminate funding agencies like The National Endowment for the Arts and The National Endowment for the Humanities. That’s reigniting a debate over what the government’s role should be when it comes to supporting arts.

Three members of the local arts and culture community, Ray Solley of the The Tower Theatre, Kelly Cannon-Miller of the Deschutes Historical Museum, and Artist Lisa Marie Sipe, joined Diane Dean to talk about that for this week’s Supper Club.

Supper Club is sponsored by Pine Tavern Restaurant and Great American Furniture Warehouse.
