The museum welcomed Cannupa Hanska Luger  as the 2018-19 Oregon—Where Past Is Present featured contemporary artist. 

Raised on the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota, Luger is a New Mexico-based, multidisciplinary artist of Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara, Lakota, Austrian, and Norwegian descent. Interweaving performance, visual arts, and political action, his work invites us all to engage with Indigenous Peoples and Values apart from the colonial lens.
