Nice blog, I have enjoyed reading it since you went online. I think it is the only local form of media that actually stays local. Finally a place I can go and not have to read the words: Bush, Iraq and Republican.

[Excerpt from SpokaneArts] "In 1981, the City of Spokane enacted its "% for Art" Ordinance mandating that 1% of certain capital construction costs be utilized to purchase artwork for enhancing public buildings and spaces. A primary function of the Spokane Arts Commission is coordinating the selection, placement and other planning and design factors of municipal art projects in accordance with the overall municipal arts plan. Use of artwork in City buildings helps to keep them lively and visually interesting, combating the stereotype that government buildings are uninviting, sterile, and mundane. The program recognizes the unique contribution each artist makes to our community while creating an interesting, educational environment with artworks that attract citizens and visitors."
