The York Memorial Project

York, William Clark's slave, was a member of the Lewis and Clark expedition. He was the only expedition member to not gain financially upon returning East as he was still a slave. Clark would not set him free.

“I have been intrigued by the motto ‘Art Heals.’ I am constantly wondering if…this is true. I don’t think that art can right all wrongs, obviously, but I am convinced that it can help.”

~ Linda Tesner, Director of the Hoffman Gallery of Contemporary Art
Committee Chair: The York Memorial Project

(The York Memorial Project was conceived by Charles Neal, one of the HDDC Founders, when he was attending Lewis and Clark College.)
