Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund Supports Celilo Park Art Installation

December 8, 2014

Confluence ends a banner year with yet another major grant in support of Maya Lin's final art installation along the Columbia River system. The Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund has awarded a $500,000 capital grant to help build a curved, elevated walkway modeled after the tribal fishing platforms at Celilo Park near The Dalles, Oregon. Confluence's sixth project site tells the story of Celilo Falls, a center of trade and culture for millennia before it was submerged under water by The Dalles Dam in 1957.

The Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund was created in 1970 by the late Maybelle Clark Macdonald and her husband, Fred Macdonald, with the mission: To relieve the misfortune and promote the well-being of mankind.more >
