Story Time

Tell Your Story at Coos Art Museum

Coos Bay – Coos Art Museum (CAM) is celebrating 50 years as a center of arts and culture on Oregon’s South Coast. In celebration of this accomplishment the Museum will be hosting CAM Community Days during its 2016 Anniversary year. CAM Community Days are interactive, hands on Saturdays in the art museum.

Saturday, April 30, 2016 will be the second interactive Saturday themed, “Tell Your Story.” For centuries civilizations have utilized art to communicate stories and cultural traditions. Join us at Coos Art Museum and engage in activities and displays that tell “Your” story and “Ours.” Activities will include: a story telling project, “Community Mosaic” and “Can you tell me more about this picture?” quest. We have even pulled out the Museum scrap books for you to enjoy! Please stop by and share your memories about the art museum with us. We are collecting oral and pictorial stories.

This event is open to the public. Coos Art Museum is located in downtown Coos Bay on Anderson and doors open at 10 am. Admission to the Museum is FREE for CAM Community Days thanks to the generous support of local business sponsors: Grami Properties, Honda World, Century 21 Best Realty, Inc. and Spotlight Country Bar & Night Club.

Saturday, April 30th will also mark the official start of the 2016 Coos Art Museum Arts & Culture Rally & Charm Trail. Pick up your rally map and follow it to 50 local arts and culture venues.
