Ken Butler Workshop and Concert Canceled

A children's workshop and concert by Ken Butler planned for Saturday at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art and the Historic Elsinore Theatre have been canceled.

Artist Ken Butler had to cancel both events due to health reasons. He had planned to offer an afternoon sound workshop for youths at the museum and an evening concert at the Elsinore. Anyone who had purchased tickets for the Elsinore concert may contact the theatre at (503) 375-3574 for a refund.

Both events had been planned in conjunction with Ken Butler: Hybrid Visions, an exhibition opening Saturday and continuing through Aug. 26 at the museum. The exhibition features Butler's inventive "hybrid" instruments made from found objects, including film reel guitars, cowboy boot violins and axe cellos. The exhibition will continue as planned.
