Historic Hood River
Morganne’s Monday pick is this 1933 Oscar Hukari painting of Celilo Falls. She selected it because of the tie-in with e next exhibition for the history museum: “Voices of the River”. “Voices of the River” is a traveling exhibition from Confluence project which amplifies the voices of indigenous peoples of the Columbia. Celilo Falls was one of the most important voices of the river. I wish we could hear what Oscar Hukari heard when he painted this image.
You can learn more about this exhibit here, and you can see it when the museum reopens in March. Hopefully the Hukaris will weigh in with some information about Oscar Hukari and his paintings.
