The "whales" bring jobs which are much needed locally. It seems a bit negative and counter-productive to to say we don't need them. It is also not very progressive to be snobbish about what businesses are in Spokane. Big stores bring in customers who want to shop in them. Those customers who go to places like Urban Outfitters, Apple, and Anthropology stores end up, more often than not, checking out the local businesses nearby. That is what happens in cities.
Is Spokane a city or a small town that is negative toward anything that brings jobs or visitors to shop here?
I am glad that the artists found a place to show their work, even if it is outside of Spokane.
There needs to be a wider range of subject matter in art being shown in Spokane. Sometimes art pushes the envelope and makes people uncomfortable. That is okay and should be embraced and not be "taken down" because very conservative-minded people dislike it. I have always wondered why there wasn't a wider range of subject matter and why the scarcity of artistic nudes in art locally. Reading that art showings of that subject matter have been taken down after complaints now tells me why.
I hope they can bring the show to Spokane and that it gets publicized when it happens.
Vast improvement. I see this park attracting more people now that it looks comfortable to be in. It was so hard to get to before and just visually bleak before the renovation.
Definitely sounds worth checking out.
This article is so laugh inducing. The problem with Spokane is people who insist is is fine here and refuse to allow progress. The ones who ignore new ideas and cling to the old. Who turn a blind eye to the problems in hopes that ignoring them will make them go away.
Not the people talking about the problems and seeing Spokane without rose-coloured glasses on.
Talking about the issues in Spokane that need fixing is not being a troll.
This is the best? I pity people who think Azteca is good Mexican food.
It took them this long to figure out they needed to inspect the places more often? I have lived here off and on since 1984 and everyone ALWAYS knew the massage parlors were fronts for prostitution.
