May 29 - September 2, 2018

The Hallie Ford Museum of Art at Willamette University will offer free admission to all active military personnel and their families throughout the summer as part of the Blue Star Museums Program.

“Our participation in the Blue Star Museums Program provides a great opportunity to recognize and thank our military families for all they are doing for our country,” said Director John Olbrantz. “We also hope that it will provide the impetus for military personnel and their families to become life-long museum goers.”

This program is held in collaboration with the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense and more than 2000 museums throughout the United States. The National Endowment for the Arts is an independent agency of the federal government that supports artistic excellence, creativity and innovation for the benefit of individuals and communities. Blue Star Families is a national, nonpartisan, nonprofit network of military families from all ranks and services, including guard and reserve, with a mission to support, connect and empower military families.

The free admission program is available for any bearer of a Geneva Convention common access card (CAC), a DD Form 1173 ID card, or a DD Form 1173-1 ID card, which includes active duty military (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard), National Guard and Reserve members and up to five immediate family members. A complete list of the over 2000 participating museums can be found at www.arts.gov/bluestarmuseums.

Upcoming Exhibition

Robert Bibler: Works on Paper

May 12 – July 15, 2018

Study Gallery, Print Study Center

For more than 40 years, Robert Bibler (American, born 1948) has combined a fascination with cinematic storytelling, classic film, and Renaissance art to create a beautifully rendered and thoughtful body of work. A master draftsman, Bibler embraces figurative representation and symbolism in surreal, narrative works that distort space and time. This exhibition of Bibler’s work has been organized by Collection Curator Jonathan Bucci, and features drawings and mixed media works on paper created between 1974 and 2017.

Bibler lives in Salem, Oregon, and taught studio art and film studies at Chemeketa Community College for 30 years, retiring in 2003. He also helped bring classic and contemporary films to Salem for 40 years as Coordinator of the Wednesday Evening Film Series. Bibler has exhibited extensively in the Pacific Northwest and his work is included in public and private collections throughout the region, including the Hallie Ford Museum of Art. He earned his BFA degree from the University of Washington and his MFA degree from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
