Since I was in the area today I dropped in to chat with the Oregon Arts Commission in Salem. My longtime motto has always been any day I learn something new is a good day. I learned LOTS so mark this as a VERY good day.
Something that changed from years ago is the public doesn't have ready access to this area. It's now behind a key coded door. They were nice and paged someone to come out and talk to me about the program I had previously emailed about and never got a reply. Turns out the program no longer exists. But I did learn about a new avenue to research so I'll be starting that in the near future.
