dc.description.abstractIn 2000, a non-profit organization, the Confluence Project, based in Vancouver, Washington commissioned Maya Lin to design seven site-specific art installations. Lin chose certain points along the Columbia River to commemorate the bicentennial of the Corps of Discovery, the Lewis and Clark Expedition. I will focus on the third completed site, Bird Blind, located at the Sandy River Delta in Troutdale, Oregon. This artwork is a functional piece for viewing the surrounding wildlife in addition to a textually informative work referencing the diaries of Lewis and Clark and includes the current species status report published by the Sierra Club on the animals observed by Lewis and Clark. This thesis examines the accessibility of the artwork to the wide variety of audiences and its success as a point of dialogue for its specific site.en_US
