State of the Visual Arts in Spokane: Creating Patronage

Saranac Art Projects is pleased to host the final panel discussion in our ongoing series examining the current state of affairs in the Spokane art scene. To recap:

The first State of the Visual Arts Symposium created an open forum for discussing things happening in our community theorizing what the future might hold. Then we addressed “Venues” – spaces dedicated to creating and exhibiting art in our region. We then hosted a conversation about “Critical Dialogue” – authentic, engaged, objective discussions about the quality and relevance of the work created and exhibited in our city.

Our fourth and final symposium will concentrate on creating a more expansive and engaged audience for the visual arts.

Our featured panelists will comment about what they are currently doing to “Create Patronage” as well as what more could be done. The meeting will have ample time reserved for discussion and audience participation will be encouraged.

Panel Participants:

Scott Kolbo – Artist and Professor – Panel Moderator

Brooke Matson – Artist, Art Teacher, and Supervisor of RiVerSpeAK

Ben Mitchell – Curator of Art at the Northwest Museum of Art and Culture

Karen Mobley – Artist, Arts Director City of Spokane
