Recently, Charbonneau was contacted by Phinney Art Gallery located in Joseph, Oregon. The gallery has a 6-1/2 foot bronze of Sacajawea with baby son, Jean Baptiste Charbonneau, created by Oregon artist Agnes Vincen Talbot.
Fundraising efforts are underway to purchase the bronze for $52,000 and bring it to Charbonneau. The Charbonneau Arts Association has setup a donation portal for this project. New Year’s Eve was the first of such fundraising events, raising about $10,000.
On February 10, 2023, will be the second fundraising event at Charbonneau. This will be a Pasta Buffet with wine-tasting and bingo. Price $25. Bingo is $20. The event is open to the public.
