Free Family Morning: Transform fishing rope into art!


See: Protecting Body and Community: COVID-19 Updates

Transform reclaimed fishing rope debris into beautiful art with Emily Miller!

Artist Emily Miller invites you into her Ghost Net Landscape. Miller rescues mountains of colorful plastics from the sea off the Oregon coast, and turns them into huge art installations and beautiful creations. Join her at Five Oaks Museum on March 14, 2020 to create your own unique fish out of reclaimed rope! Little ones, grandparents and everyone in between will have a chance to add to a growing school of fishes displayed in the museum’s Welcome Gallery for the rest of the month.

This event marks the launch of Free Family Morning for 2020! On second Saturdays from March through November bring the whole family for free admission and a hands-on, all-ages workshop led by local artists. Each month you can see the teaching artist’s work all month long in the Welcome Gallery, too!


Saturday, March 14, 2020 from 10am to 1pm

Emily’s work is on display from Saturday March 7th – Saturday March 28th
