Over the past two decades, Central Oregon’s communities have embraced the arts and made them an integral part of local life as well as an attraction for visitors. A vibrant arts and museum culture has experiences for fine art connoisseurs and families looking for engaging activities for all ages. Central Oregon’s cultural treasures include

For true art lovers, a walk through downtown Bend and the Old Mill District during one of the first Fridays of the month says it all. Paintings, sculptures, and photography are on display in galleries, retail shops, offices and on sidewalks. Award-winning juried art fairs draw thousands to Bend and Sunriver every summer while the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show in July – going on 41 years – remains the largest of its kind in the U.S.

Redmond also features several permanent public art pieces and several “on loan” pieces through a program called Art Around the Clock. This outdoor gallery is designed to enhance the beauty and livability of the community and features a select showing of juried pieces on a rotating basis.

Bend’s High Desert Museum offers hands-on exhibits for inquiring minds of all ages. The museum reveals the nature of things in the West’s high desert through artful exhibits, alluring animals, engaging programs and meaningful history.

With its selection of community theaters, museums, art galleries and concert venues – big and small, Central Oregon is the place for a diverse cultural scene with a spectacular backdrop.
