Art in Transit Project

The City Line is a bus-rapid transit route with electric buses that will run east-west from Browne’s Addition to Spokane Community College, beginning in 2023 and operated by the Spokane Transit Authority (STA). 30+ new bus stations are under construction now, featuring designs by local artists! Spokane Arts is proud to partner with STA to integrate colorful, vibrant artwork to make the City Line uniquely Spokane.

Add yourself to the Artist Roster!
The Spokane Arts artist roster is a searchable tool designed to showcase local creatives and connect them with community members seeking artists and makers. People can browse the entire roster to discover a new favorite artist or filter by the type of work they’re seeking. Artists can share samples of their work, a description of what drives them to create and links to check out their website or social media. If you're an artist in the Spokane area, you can submit your information to be included on the roster! This is a free resource designed to support the local creative community. Submit your information here to be added to the roster. Please note: the artist roster is a free resource directory to find artists. Any local artist can add their information. The artists on the roster are not endorsed or represented by Spokane Arts. 
News
Monument removal recommended by Citizens' Advisory Council
Spokane Arts stands with the Pacific Islander community in asking the city to remove this statue. Removing it would be one step toward correcting inaccurate history and toward healing the communities harmed. This monument was donated to the city of Spokane in 1906, commissioned by a wealthy family. The pediment of the statue perpetuates racist stereotypes in both text and imagery, and is a source of ongoing harm not only to Samoans and the broader Pacific Islander community, but to all Indigenous peoples who have been denigrated with the same racist stereotypes found on the monument. The statue should be removed.
