Family Storytime, Sat, 10:30am, at The Dalles Wasco County Library.  Geared to preschool and early elementary aged children, but all ages are welcome.

Maryhill Museum invites you to come join in the fun as we create a massive 66-foot woodblock print using a steamroller!  This is the culmination of the Exquisite Gorge Project, a collaborative printmaking project featuring 11 artists working with communities along a 220-mile stretch of the Columbia River.  Artists worked with community members from their assigned stretch of river and carved images on 4 x 6-foot wood panels. Each completed panel will be connected end-to-end and printed using a steamroller to create a massive 66-foot print. Washington State Poet Laureate, Claudia Castro Luna, will be at Maryhill to create a poem commemorating the event and the Columbia River. Meet the artists at noon, then enjoy kids printmaking activities, music and more. Free on the grounds of Maryhill Museum of Art.   https://www.maryhillmuseum.org/
