Confluence Listening Circle Dedication
M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust Supports Celilo Park Art Installation
September 14, 2015
VANCOUVER, Wash. - Momentum continues to build toward completing Confluence's sixth and final art installation along the Columbia River system in collaboration with celebrated artist Maya Lin. The M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust 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. The project reconnects people with the legacy of Celilo Falls, a center of trade and culture from time immemorial before it was submerged under water by The Dalles Dam in 1957.
The mission of the M. J. Murdock Charitable Trust is to seek to enrich the quality of life in the Pacific Northwest by providing grants and enrichment programs to nonprofit organizations that seek to strengthen the region's educational, spiritual, and cultural base in creative and sustainable ways.more >
