McNulty Creek Art Pieces ...
"After nearly a year and half of fundraising, the St. Helens Arts and Cultural Commission is planning to host a dedication ceremony of a new public art piece titled "Salmon Tree Cycle" in mid-September.

The city of St. Helens announced on sockal media last week that a ribbon-cutting and dedication ceremony for the sculputre that will sit on McNulty Creek Bridge will take place Thursday, Sept.21.

The project is the second phase of the Gateway Sculptures Project introduced in 2010 by the ACC to beautify Highway 30 and give the roadway a sense of character. Phase one of the project was completed in 2014 when two lantern-like obelisk pillars were installed on the Milton Creek Bridge. ...

In September 2015, the arts commission approved a design proposal and contract with a Portland-based architecture and design company, rhize A+D, to complete the work.

The Salmon Tree Cycle sculputre includes two pieces that illustrate the impact of salmon life cycles on the rivers they inhabit and thre trees that grow on the banks of those rivers.

The sculpture itself is composed of two separate elements which will be installed on McNulty Creek Bridge on the south entrance of the city. One portion will be composed of a fir tree sculputre decorated with salmon silouettes that will extend skyward 22 feet; the other will be a complimentary 8-foot-tall tree trunk that will sit at the opposite end of the bridge. ...
