The Inlander Writes Up Spokane’s Murals

"New murals have been popping up across the Inland Northwest, brightening public spaces and bringing more art to the masses..."

The Inlander’s food and listings editor, Chey Scott, has written up an engaging survey of Spokane’s thriving mural and street-art culture.

Cruising north on Monroe Street, all of a sudden the color hits you. Emerging on the right side of the street, in the heart of Spokane’s Emerson-Garfield neighborhood, are deep blue waves, seed-speckled watermelons, fluffy clouds, a sailboat, a happy alligator and big blocks of vivid, cheerful colors and whimsical patterns. Stretching 100 feet long and almost 30 feet tall, this eye-catching mural is one of the region’s newest public art pieces and has already become a community favorite.
