All K-12 students in public, private, charter or homeschool are invited to submit one work of nature-themed art for a youth exhibition in our Eco Hub gallery at the Willamette Heritage Center.


  • Artwork should depict a native animal (a mammal, bird, fish, insect, or other wild critter) that lives in the Willamette Valley.

  • Artwork can also portray a landscape in the Willamette Valley that shows where native animals live.

  • All art should be on paper, measure 8.5 x 11 inches, and be suitable to mount on a wall (sorry, no 3-D work or art on canvas).

  • Art will be mounted on foamcore for the exhibition and will be returned to each student after the exhibition end date.
