We are deeply saddened to hear the news of the passing of local Native American artist Rick Bartow.
Rick was an Oregon treasure.
We are proud to have one of his works, Kestrel Stalling, on display in my office.
I’m even prouder that one of his signature works, We Were Always Here, was installed in Washington D.C.
We join with the Oregon arts community in expressing condolences to his family and friends.
