Visions of Southern Oregon

Enjoy these stunning images by southern Oregon artists set to original music contributed by local musicians. When we decided to update our station identification slides, we asked our viewers if they would contribute photos and paintings to show us what SO PBS's broadcast area looks like from their corner of our world.

We received so many fantastic images, we decided to create some short interstitials and put the images to music. Then, when we asked for music, we received some amazing contributions of original songs from local musicians. Below are the first results of our collaborative visions of art and music. Please support your local artists and musicians who contributed their talents to enrich all of our lives.
