Spokane Public Library - Public Art Projects
Spokane Arts is hosting open calls for several public art projects to be installed in conjunction with current Spokane Public Library projects, including a large overhead indoor art project for the Downtown Library, and outdoor art projects at the Shadle Public Library and the Liberty Park Public Library. In 2018, Spokane voters passed a $77 million bond issue for the remodel of four libraries and the construction of three additional libraries to serve the citizens of Spokane. For detailed information about the City of Spokane Public Library Projects, please see the website http://future.spokanelibrary.org.

Chase Gallery 2021 exhibits
Open Call for Artwork submissions for the Chase Gallery in Spokane City Hall, exhibition season 2021 Deadline: Wednesday, October 14, 11:59 p.m. Spokane Arts is now accepting portfolios for consideration of the Chase Gallery's 2021 exhibition schedule. The Chase is located prominently in Spokane City Hall. The mission of the gallery is to exhibit works that engage the public, bring people to a new outlook on contemporary issues, feature innovative artwork, and provide space for people of all backgrounds to share their perspective through art. The Chase Gallery is open if and when City Hall is open to the public. In 2020, although we have installed shows physically at the gallery, City Hall has been closed to the public due to coronavirus related public health restrictions and shows are being viewed primarily online. 2021 may see similar or other currently unforeseen restrictions.
