Harsch Investment Properties Opens Newly Acquired Former Bank Building for Pendleton Round-Up Arts/Culture Pop-Up Gallery

Native American art exhibitions by Crow’s Shadow Institute and tastings from Eastern Oregon wineries will add excitement to the Rodeo

PORTLAND, OREGON – September 12, 2016 – Jordan Schnitzer, President of Portland, Ore.-headquartered Harsch Investment Properties, announces the company will open its recently acquired former bank branch building in the heart of Downtown Pendleton as a unique cultural “pop-up” destination during the city’s popular rodeo Round-Up and Happy Canyon Week (Sept. 14-17). Pop-up features will include an exhibition of Native American art from the collection of Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts (CSIA), tastings from well-known Eastern Oregon wineries, and more.

CSIA brings the potential of making and appreciating Native American art to Oregonians and national audiences. It features more than 200 permanent collection prints, hosts artist residencies, presents biennials, and provides scholarly access to collections. Award-winning wineries announced so far at the unique Pendleton pop-up destination are the celebrated (Umatilla-River-vicinity) Echo Ridge Cellars and (Milton-Freewater area) Don Carlo Vineyard.

“Jordan came down here with his team and listened to our needs for Round-Up this year, said Pat Beard, of Travel Pendleton, “and he came up with the pop-up idea, blending his love of art and our community. It’s really a great, right fit for our community.”

Future plans for the 9,500-square-foot former bank have not been announced, but Schnitzer said he bought the building, which sat idle for years, to give back to Pendleton. This latest commitment complements a long-history of giving back to the Eastern Oregon community. Past involvement has included setting up a college scholarship though the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation for members of the Pendleton Round-Up Court and Happy Canyon Princesses, as well as contributing to the historic building renovation that allowed creation of the Pendleton Center for the Arts.
