A collection of 25 Nez Perce portraits is a feature of the Rocky Reach Dam visitor center, all painted by the late Rowena Alcorn, who dedicated more than 20 years to that task.

I wandered through it the other day, and picked up an informative brochure about them at the visitor desk. Alcorn started painting them when she and her husband were living in Walla Walla in 1935. The first ones were painted from life.
