Spokane Sportsplex Public Art
Requests for Qualifications are being sought by Spokane Arts by August 14, 2020 for two art projects to be installed as part of the the Spokane Sportsplex project! The Spokane Public Facilities District has undertaken a project to build the Spokane Sportsplex at 599 W. Caltaldo Avenue, Spokane, WA. As a part of this project, two public art projects will be created: one in the interior of the Sportsplex which will be a hanging overhead work of art in the south lobby and a second which will be an outdoor interactive work on the north side of the facility.

Event: Opens July 1
Spokane Arts is excited to share Threshold at the Chase Gallery and online, July 1 - August 28, 2020, featuring the work of May Kytonen, Sam Marroquin, Mariah Boyle, Laura Ahola-Young, Sally Machlis and Delphine Keim. Threshold is a group exhibit featuring the work of six artists working throughout the northwest in a variety of mediums. Using paint, printmaking, drawing, with work on fabric, paper, and canvas, these artists explore boundaries of home and meanings of place. Through diverse approaches, the work in  Threshold centers on themes of home and housing, migration and immigration, environment and boundaries. Powerful individual pieces invite the viewer to examine the many thresholds we approach and cross in our lives. Enjoy the exhibit here online all summer. Spokane City Hall is currently closed to the public. Normally open to the public Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Chase Gallery is open if and when City Hall is open to the public. 
Outdoor court mural artists announced
Tiffany Patterson, Joshua Martel, and Nick Goettling have been selected as the three individual artists to install outdoor basketball court murals on Spokane Parks basketball courts in Peaceful Valley, Chief Garry Park, and Thornton Murphy Park. The murals are part of a Hooptown USA project revitalizing courts throughout the region, made possible with support from MultiCare Regional Health System and Spokane Arts. The court murals are a celebration of the strength of both our local arts and sports communities. Together the mission is to establish a mosaic of art and basketball throughout the region to inspire and encourage inclusivity, ultimately building healthier communities.
