Projects

Oregon Cartoon Institute works to raise awareness of Oregon’s rich animation and cartooning history by creating public history/arts education events with a wide array of partners, including Disjecta, Maryhurst University, Oregon Jewish Museum, Ethos Music Center, Oregon Historical Society, Portland State University, Western Washington University, Seattle International Film Festival Cinema, and Oregon Museum of Science and Industry.

Oregon Movies, A to Z  is a blog which explores Oregon film history, expanding the definition of Oregon film to include not just films shot in the state, but films made by Oregonians, regardless of shooting location. I began keeping Oregon Movies, A to Z  in 2008, as part of my co-curation, with Dennis Nyback, of the 2009 Oregon Sesquicentennial Film Festival at Marylhurst University.

Oregon Cartoon Institute and Oregon Movies, A to Z are fiscally sponsored by Oregon Cultural Heritage Commission.
