Coliseum Museum Events in November


The Coliseum Museum in downtown Oregon, IL offers several interesting activities and events this November with new artists on display, an artist reception, author book fair, and full program for the annual Candlelight Walk.

Dick Cholke, of Pecatonica, will be the feature artist during November with his display of watercolor paintings. Instructor and oil painter Stuart Roddy from Coleta will display his work in the Lowden Gallery, November 1st – December 31st.

On Friday, November 10th, CMAAA will highlight these exhibits and others with an Artist Reception from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm, with music by Dixon based Acoustic Circus. The band plays electrical/acoustic rock in the vein of jam and festival music with solid rhythm, impressive leads, and great vocals.

More than twenty authors from across northern Illinois as well as Wisconsin and Kansas will be offering a wide variety of books for sale at the CMAAA Book Fair on Saturday, November 18th, 11:00 am – 3:00 pm.

On November 25th, the Coliseum Museum will present a special program including performances by the Byron Dance Academy, Oregon High School Jazz Band, and Oregon High School Madrigals.
