Gendron painting giant MAC mural

Artist Ric Gendron will soon begin work on the final touch to the new American Indian Activity Center at the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture (MAC): a 200-square-foot wraparound mural.

Gendron, a member of the Colville and Umatilla tribes, has been commissioned to create a narrative-style mural which will cover three of the new center’s wall spaces, floor to ceiling.

Gendron begins work on Friday and should be finished by mid-October. Visitors can watch him work during regular museum hours, but please don’t distract him. He has a lot of painting to do.

The American Indian Activity Center is on the museum’s second level and it will host lectures, storytelling and art experiences centered on Plateau cultural traditions.
