Beyond Vanport: Remembering Native North Portland/Artwork by Peggy Ball-Morrill

  • Interstate Firehouse Cultural Center 5340 North Interstate Avenue Portland, OR, 97217 United States (map)

Klamath/Modoc artist Peggy Ball-Morrill’s paintings portray a community nearly invisible in popular culture where representations of native people are often limited to westerns or cartoons. The paintings remember a close-knit native community at a time when federal termination and relocation policies threatened Native survival. Peggy passed away in August of 2015.
