Behind the Bar: The Folk Art of Arvi Ostrom and the Snug Harbor
Astoria's prolific folk artist and saloon operator Arvi Ostrom left behind a lifetime of artwork. Many people remember Arvi's Union Town tavern the Snug Harbor and his drawings.
During his forty-year ownership of the "Snug", as it was often referred to, Arvi produced more than 10,000 drawings, paintings, and carvings; a fraction of which have been included in the newest temporary exhibit at the Heritage Museum.
