D.E. May Traveling Case at Pendleton Center for the Arts

July 14, 2023 to October 27, 2023



The traveling case is an opportunity to see D.E. May’s artistic vision and celebrate his legacy.

Dan May spent his entire life in Salem, Oregon traveling beyond just a few times ever. He drew inspiration close to home, from the sight of log trucks, tree's rings, workmen’s tools, farm buildings, basalt cliffs, bicycles, and architectural lines throughout the city.

The artworks in the traveling case range from intimate pencils used by May to completed three dimensional sculptures, objects he called Miniatures, to other work and ephemera highlighting the breadth of his sculptural practice.

Pendleton Center for the Arts
