Housed in a beautiful log building on Joseph’s Main Street, the Josephy Center for Arts and Culture provides a gathering place to celebrate, promote and inspire arts and culture in Wallowa County. We offer an eclectic blend of programs that serve local and regional arts and culture enthusiasts of all ages, as well as tourists and visitors from outside the area.
In conjunction with our regular art exhibits, we host artist lectures, musical performances, films, and art classes and workshops for kids and adults. Students at the Josephy Center explore drawing, painting, print-making, photography, drama, film, and sound and video engineering. The Josephy Library not only provides the community with a rich cultural resource of written and recorded works about Wallowa County and the West, but also offers bi-weekly brown bag lunch presentations about topics ranging from the work of scholar and author Alvin Josephy (for whom the center is named) to the history of local agriculture, the development of local fisheries, and women in Wallowa County.
