Donations toward artwork created by a former local resident will enable the Port of Camas-Washougal to install additional art pieces along a waterfront trail.
The trail and park, which is expected to break ground within the next few months, will include part of the former Hambleton Lumber Company site, at 335 S. “A” St., Washougal.
A prototype of a salmon-shaped piece of stainless steel, created by Malo Hasselblad, is available to view at the port office, 24 S. “A” St., Washougal.
Each plaque, measuring 14 inches in length and 7.5 inches in width, will offer space for 50 characters. Donations of $250 per fish will be accepted.
Hasselblad, a 1997 Washougal High School graduate, studied welding technology at Clark College.
Now a professional fabricator, he hopes his art will generate interest in the waterfront trail project and attract visitors to the area.
