SATURATE is a city-wide collaboration calling attention to Spokane's diverse yet under-recognized artists. For the Visual Arts Tour in February arts venues large and small will simultaneously feature artwork, curatorial projects, and performances by Artists 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.  

Dates: Feb / 3 + 4 + 5 / 2017

For Venues

What does it mean to participate?
It invites you to connect with an Artist of Color(Check out the the Artist Roster page!) Participating venues will be featured in Spokane Arts advertising, print, and on-line media. If you are already booked, and your artist doesn't identify as an AOC, not to worry! You will still be a part of the Arts Tour 2017. This is a great opportunity to schedule an Artist of Color any time of year. You may consider hiring a designer for your postcard, a poet, or musician for the opening reception. Minority owned businesses are encouraged to participate too!

For Artists

What does it mean to participate?
It means reaching out to an arts venuea gallery, coffee shop, co-op, wherever art hangs out. (Check out the Opportunity page!) It means sharing your perspective with Spokane. You can even create your own space or host an open studio! If you identify as an Artist of Color then your vision, music, or spoken word is important to share. Whether your art is about your identity or has nothing to do with it, the purpose of SATURATE is to build a city of inclusion and deepen the conversation.
