I enjoyed taking my teenage granddaughter to the museum on a Tuesday. In addition to being free, it was a such a quiet morning there that we enjoyed taking our time and absorbing a wide range of graphic art, sculpture, and baskets.

A small museum with the nice exhibitions, but nothing particularly special. Somehow I expected a bigger, better museum in the state's capital city.

The Hallie Ford Art Museum is located near the state capitol and Willamette University. During our visit, the exhibits were of art created by native Americans and art that showed the sun, moon or stars.

This is a medium sized museum that has much to offer art enthusiasts. The exhibits change regularly, and it has had many impressive shows. The private collection of contemporary and historical works is also very impressive.

Behind the Beyond PSYCHEDELIC POSTERS AND FASHION IN SAN FRANCISICO, 1966-71 Gary Westford’s collection is phenomenal. Every detail is pure perfection. It’s an eye candy flashback to the 60’s, orchestrated with exceptional composition. I’m a big music fan, and even the music is superb, it...More

With a rainy day in Salem there are only a few things to stay busy with. We decided to come check out the work at Hallie Ford. It was surprisingly good, although a tad expensive for such a small offering. My favorite pieces were from...More

Enjoyed this art collection; just the right size for a lovely hour of art appreciation. The permanent collection includes interesting Native American art with a focus on tribes from the area.
