A History of Inclusion
Queer Art Walk was founded in 2019 by a group of local artists, with the mission to uplift LGBTQ+ voices and celebrate a historically marginalized group through art. The citywide event in Spokane was the first of its kind in Washington State. The idea was conceived by former Spokane arts commissioner Andrew Whitver, and supported by a group of volunteers including Tiffany Patterson, Eva Silverstone, Roin Morigeau, June Sanders, and Remelisa Cullitan. When Whitver and his husband moved away in early 2022, he asked Spokane Arts to take the reins on coordinating the event, along with the original committee members, to ensure the longevity of the annual celebration.
