Engineer and sculptor Christopher Fennell welded over 50 used canoes together as a tribute to Lewis and Clark and the Nez Perce Tribe. The sculpture, installed in 2010, is 64 feet long and 24 feet high. The mural of rippling water and swimming fish behind the sculpture creates a lovely backdrop for this most unusual and dramatic piece! Floating in a pond nearby is a companion piece: two waterlily fountains, also made from canoes.
Canoe Wave is at the northwest edge of Lewiston, overlooking the Snake River. The best view is when driving the Hwy 12 bridge from Clarkston into Lewiston. You can park behind Art Beat and walk around the sculpture.
