To aid in slowing the spread of COVID-19, the Oregon Historical Society closed its doors on March 14 —the very day we were scheduled to open our landmark exhibit, Nevertheless, They Persisted: Women’s Voting Rights and the 19th Amendment. To help ensure that as many people as possible see the exhibit once it is safe to do so, we have extended its run well into 2021. In the meantime, we are pleased to offer a special sneak preview, just for OHS members, live from the exhibit gallery. Curator Lori Erickson will show off some of her favorite stories and artifacts and will take questions from the audience.

As Curator of Exhibitions and Special Projects at the Oregon Historical Society, Lori curates exhibits for the OHS museum and develops supporting content for exhibits. Most of her time is spent doing exhibit research, constructing exhibit content outlines, and tracking down photos and artifacts to help support exhibit storylines. She also manages many of the incoming temporary exhibits and OHS’ traveling exhibit program, which includes several OHS-produced small exhibits that tour to locations around the state. Before arriving at OHS in 2013, Lori held positions as Curator of Collections and Senior Exhibit Developer in addition to working as a museum collections consultant. She holds both a B.A. and an M.S. in anthropology with a focus on archaeology and museum studies.

As a thank you to our loyal members who continue to support our mission through their membership, OHS has developed this virtual series to provide a behind-the-scenes look at what OHS staff do day to day. From a private curator chat to a conversation with editors of the Oregon Historical Quarterly and hand-picked reading lists from our expert museum store staff, Behind-the-Scenes with OHS is a way to engage with our membership while we are physically distant.
