Help Maintain The Art

October 14, 2014

Confluence friends,

The artwork at our oldest site at Cape Disappointment needs your help.  After nearly ten years, coastal weather has taken its toll, even on installations built to last generations. The Chinook creation story on the Confluence Fish Cleaning Table needs to be re-etched. We also need to erase some graffiti carved into the ancient stump in the Cedar Circle. We’re pursuing grants to do this work because it’s so important for the communities of Ilwaco, Washington and Astoria, Oregon. There are immediate preservation needs at Cape Disappointment but in the long term, we need to create maintenance funds for all six of our sites. If it’s important to you to maintain these special places, please consider a donation to Confluence and make sure to note that your contribution is to maintain the quality of this important artwork. Thank you.

Colin Fogarty
