Conversation | Remembering Royal Nebeker

5:00 PM – 6:00 PM

Paulus Lecture Hall, Willamette University College of Law

Friends, family members, and former colleagues of the artist will reflect on Nebeker’s life and career.

Join John Olbrantz, the Maribeth Collins Director of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art, as he moderates a reflective conversation with the family, friends and former colleagues of Oregon artist Royal Nebeker.

  • Sarah Nebeker (Royal’s wife)
  • Israel Nebeker (Royal’s son)
  • Bill Park (Artist and Royal’s former student)
  • Harry Terrill (High school and college friend)

This conversation will be followed by the opening reception at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art between 6 and 8 p.m. (R.S.V.P. acceptances only by calling 503-370-6855 or by email at museum-art@willamette.edu).
