Liberty Gallery Features “Myths and Legends” in June ~ Digital Works by Artist Esther Mann

From the beginning people have relied on myths and legends to give explanation of the world around them. From providing a framework for understanding natural phenomena, to giving voice to every step in the journey of life from birth, to death traditions, myths and legends give us context, keeping us steady as we take each step toward the future, the unknown. Today we also have our myths & legends, we call them psychology, or biology, or science. Names change, but the stories remain.

Architect Spotlight: J. Meejin Yoon of Höweler+Yoon

This presentation will introduce the latest installation in Riverfront Park in Spokane, Stepwell, an installation designed by J. Meejin Yoon. Stepwell is located on the former site of the 1974 World’s Fair – the first environmentally themed World’s Fair – which put Spokane at the forefront of the early environmental movement. Stepwell’s use of mass timber, a renewable building resource, recalls both the material history of the region but also asks us to consider how far environmental activism has come from the mid-1970s to today.
