Carousels of Oregon presentation at Garden Home Community Library

On Tuesday, July 24th at 6:00 pm, videographer and historian Darrell Jabin visits the Garden Home Community Library to share his short documentary called Oregon Carousels: Creating New Traditions.

Darrell has captured the history of carousels, the different styles and explains what it takes to design and carve one of these wonderful machines. He's photographed carousels in Seaside, Portland, Salem, Eugene, as well as ones being built in Albany and on the Southern Oregon Coast for his video. Darrell will also talk about the individual contributions and artistic efforts going into each animal in the Albany Carousel Project in downtown Albany.
