Schnitzer Family To Donate $1 Million To Confluence Project

November 21, 2014

The Schnitzer family will make a $1 million gift to help fund the internationally significant Celilo Park Confluence Project. Pink Martini band leader, and Confluence supporter, Thomas Lauderdale made the announcement Friday at the City Club of Portland. The gift comes from Arlene Schnitzer in honor of her son, Jordan Schnitzer and in honor of Lauderdale.

Renowned artist Maya Lin spoke at the City Club’s Friday Forum series. She described her design of the curved, elevated walkway modeled after the tribal fishing platforms at Celilo Park near The Dalles, Oregon. The art installation connects people to the story of Celilo Falls, which was submerged under water by The Dalles Dam in 1957.more >
