Join Restore Oregon's Modernist Society

About the Modernist Society

When Restore Oregon dreamed up ways to expand our Modernism program offering throughout the year—instead of restricting it to just one weekend—our intention was two-fold: To increase the variety of our events and create an opportunity to build community. Providing a way for a group of people to travel through our annual Modernism journey together and connect along the way is important for Restore Oregon and a core reason for developing the Modernist Society.

Modernist Society members can meet and connect with other members from event to event, enjoying a shared experience with a community feel.
