The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art––a beacon of culture founded at the University of Oregon in 1933––plays host to more than 13,000 multinational artifacts and masterworks, including art from the United States, China, Japan, and Korea. The museum’s expansive collection spotlights a wealth of contemporary American artwork, showcasing the brushstrokes of Robert Rauschenberg, the Polaroid snapshots of Andy Warhol, and the handprint turkeys of painter Morris Graves. The museum inspires awe with a collection of Russian religious icons and changing exhibits that include work by contemporary Chinese artist Xiaoze Xie and more.
With a family-membership card in hand, two art-lovers can peruse the museum’s paintings and macaroni self-portraits for a year and bring along offspring aged 18 years and younger. Members also receive invites to exclusive events, advance notice on lectures and films, and various discounts on classes and in the museum’s café and the gift shop.
