Meyer Memorial Trust Grant Endorses Celilo Park Art Installation

June 25, 2014

Oregon's philanthropic community is rallying around Maya Lin's sixth and final Confluence Project site along the Columbia River system. The Meyer Memorial Trust has awarded a $500,000 capital grant to help build a curved, raised walkway modeled after the tribal fishing platforms at Celilo Park near The Dalles, Oregon. The art installation tells the story of Celilo Falls, which was submerged under water by The Dalles Dam in 1957.
"The Confluence Project is one that has special historical and cultural significance in our region," said Doug Stamm, chief executive officer at Meyer Memorial Trust. "Completion of Maya Lin's final site, the Celilo Arc, will ensure that future generations will be able to experience the story and legacy of the now-submerged Celilo Falls."more >
