Columbia Gorge visitors and residents can add art, culture, and heritage to the many special things to discover in this region of Washington and Oregon.
The Columbia Gorge Arts & Culture Alliance has produced a guide to the gorge’s treasure trove of art, culture, and heritage that is available as a free printed map at many visitor outlets, or as a larger online collection of maps from their GorgeCulture.org website.
The “2.0 version” of the Columbia Gorge Art and Culture Tour Map features a wealth of interesting, educational and beautiful art, culture and heritage sites open to residents and visitors throughout the Columbia Gorge.
The design team incorporated a number of important features, including: listing 46 key venues (as many as space allows), using numbered and color-coded locators, giving it a cleaner, more attractive layout with featured images, making it more informative with venue hours and contact information, giving it a bold title to make it easier to find in visitor card racks, and adding a QR link to the even more extensive maps on the CGACA GorgeCulture.org website, which also includes links to the websites of the various venues.
Pick up a copy of the map from many visitor sites throughout the gorge, print a copy from the website, or just use a smart phone with the website maps, and go check out the art, culture and heritage of the Columbia River Gorge.
