This spring the Maryhill Museum of Art invited me to work on a large-scale community art project titled The Exquisite Gorge. The Maryhill Museum’s vision was grand – 11 artists from across the region were commissioned to carve 11 giant (4’ x 6’) woodblocks that depict the entirety of the Columbia River. Each artist was assigned a specific section of the river and worked with community partners to develop their work: I was assigned the section from Hat Rock State Park (near the Twin Sisters) to where the Columbia and Snake River meet and asked one of my former art students, Sarah Finger, to take the lead on designing and carving our section. Our assigned region is more commonly known as Wallula Gap, a region layered with complex histories, site usage, and environmental concerns. As a Whitman alum and geology major with a minor in art, Sarah did site visits and research in the region to create her carving. Once print day arrived, over a dozen community partners including art professors, students, curators, art center directors, librarians, and members of the Confederated Tribes worked alongside community members and volunteers to print all of the blocks. The resulting print records 11 unique views of the Columbia River Gorge on a 66’ roll of paper, the longest steamroller print on record in the world.
