In celebration of Carl Kahler’s My Wife’s Lovers, the Museum is hosting a series of “Caturday” pop-up events in partnership with local artists and the Oregon Humane Society. From improv to expert discussions to original rap and cat poetry, we’ll explore the curious intersection between cats and art.
