saturate // april 1 - june 26
SATURATE is a city-wide collaboration calling attention to Spokane's diverse yet under-recognized artists of color. For the entire month of April, many arts venues large and small will simultaneously feature artwork, curatorial projects, and performances led by people of color. Your participation, and every artist and venue joining in, will help deepen the conversation on race, identity, and culture in our city and beyond. Join in the conversation and enjoy the diversity of work at every venue.
