To celebrate the Willamette river valley and basin, one of North America’s most fertile agricultural regions, the College of Agricultural Sciences at Oregon State University is organizing its 33rd annual art exhibition for 2015: This Everlasting Valley: Willamette River Valley and Basin. This tour show, featuring agriculture and natural resources in Oregon’s Willamette river valley, completes the trio of This Everlasting Valley art exhibitions.

The initial presentation in 2005, focused on the upper Willamette Valley, from the river’s source waters to Albany; and the second, in 2009, focused on the middle Willamette Valley — Albany to Newberg. The lower Willamette River basin, from Newberg to the Columba River, sets the geographic boundaries for this exhibition.
