Grantee: Cherry Street Studios / Bill and Kathy Kostelec

Project Title: A Spokane Silver Celebration
Year awarded: 2018, Round 2

SAGA is supporting the creation of a free, public exhibition of A Spokane Silver Celebration: 50 fine art, black and white film and silver gelatin prints, which illustrate the beauty and unique character of Spokane. Much has changed since Bill and Kathy first began photographing Spokane: the Monroe Street Bridge was reconstructed, the Rookery Building was demolished, and places such as Dutch’s, the Lucky Penny, and Sam’s Pit were shuttered. These Spokane icons are just a few of the memories represented in the forthcoming exhibition, which will include many more of their favorite Spokane captures spanning 25 years.
