Click to enlarge pictures

Newport Mayor Mark McConnell reads a proclamation recognizing local artist Rick Bartow for his life long devotion to the arts and of his contribution to artistry as seen through the eyes of Native Americans, especially here in Pacific Northwest. His mother, Mable Mekemson, is pictured between Mr. Bartow and Mayor McConnell

Mr. Bartow was chosen by the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C. to contribute a defining piece of sculpture that will stand on the grounds of the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian. (Bottom picture). It will be among the first emblematic pieces that visitors will see as they approach and enter the museum.

Oregonian news reporter Lori Tobias wrote a beautiful story late last month on the honor that the Smithsonian bequeathed upon Bartow who was commissioned by the museum to help define a museum visitor’s first impression of what lies inside. “We Were Always Here” is the name of the sculpture, a pair of ornately sculpted welcoming poles that will loom over the entrance.
