Experience Living History

What if you had to wait weeks for someone to receive a text message? That’s what Annie Miller did in 1904. She wrote letters to distant loved ones and eagerly awaited their reply.

Join Annie at the Miller Ranch on Saturday, February 12. She will read from her letters and share with you tidbits from her life on a High Desert ranch.

Imagine the Future

In the new exhibit Imagine a World, the artwork of Frank Buffalo Hyde (Onondaga Nation Beaver Clan and Nez Perce), Camas Logue (Klamath, Modoc, Northern Paiute) and Brutis Baez (Wasco, Paiute, Warm Springs) lets you peer into alternative worlds and highlights Indigenous cultures thriving throughout space and time.

This work is part of an aesthetic movement sometimes referred to as Indigenous futurisms.

Explore the artistic movement and the history, ideas and art of intentional communities in Imagine a World, on display now.
