TILLAMOOK, Ore. – Oregon's food and agriculture are celebrated in a traveling exhibit of award-winning photos on display Oct. 1–29 in the lobby of Tillamook Bay Community College, 4301 3rd St. in Tillamook.
The photos are images from the pages of Oregon's Agricultural Progress magazine and showcase the bounty of Oregon agriculture.
The Tillamook exhibit is offered in conjunction with Oregon Open Campus, a new Oregon State University outreach initiative to provide local access to learning for place-bound individuals, families, businesses and communities.
"The exhibit is a reflection of the role OSU research and people play in sustaining our state's rich agricultural heritage," said Sonny Ramaswamy, dean of the OSU College of Agricultural Sciences.
Magazine editor Peg Herring said, "Food is the handshake between urban and rural communities. Our hope is that the exhibit, along with the special food issue of the magazine, will prompt conversations across Oregon about food as a necessary – and delightful – part of life."
The show is finishing a year-long tour across the state.
The exhibit is presented by OSU's Extension and Experiment Station Communications and the College of Agricultural Sciences. Photos are by Lynn Ketchum, award-winning EESC photographer. Exhibit photos are online at: http://extension.oregonstate.edu/eesc/savoryimages/
