A Special Announcement from our Executive Director

It has been a joy and an honor to serve the region’s arts & culture community on behalf of Spokane Arts. I have made the tough decision to leave my role as executive director of Spokane Arts for a new challenge. I’ll remain with Spokane Arts through July 31, then pass the baton to a new director. The Spokane Arts governing board is conducting a national search, and I have full confidence they will find a fantastic, experienced leader to guide Spokane Arts forward.


We are thrilled to announce Stepwell, a sculpture by J. Meejin Yoon of Höweler + Yoon, located in Riverfront Park, north of the Providence Playscape is now open to the public! Stepwell is an interactive sculpture that uses a renewable resource (mass timber) as its primary material. Comprised of 68 individual pieces, each hand-carved and machined, all precisely engineered to fit together like a puzzle, Stepwell explores a new, more climate-conscious way to think about our built environment. Stepwell will invite the community to sit, climb, and enjoy the unique space it creates within the park. Visitors will move through the interior of the sculpture via an ADA pathway or climb its steps to experience an elevated view of the Spokane River.
