What do you do on a Sunday in Spokane? Now that football season is over, you can participate in the counterpart of Spokane’s popular culture: Art.
This last week, The Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture opened its doors for the first time on a Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm (and will continue to do so) for guests to roam the current galleries. As executive director Forrest Rogers says, “Why close for half the weekend when Sundays are a huge day for family outings?”
“We have invested additional resources in extending the MAC’s hours to be open on Sundays,” he says.
And good news for visitors on the weekends: You can avoid mobs of elementary-aged kids, for a more, let’s say, peaceful viewing experience.
The works of naturalist David Douglas are featured as the prominent exhibition currently, and a Spokane modern architecture exhibit will open March 2.
This Sunday, Feb. 10, will be your last chance to see two Native American photograph exhibits: Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Warriors: Photographs by Gertrude Kasebier and Plateau Portraits: The Photographs of Richard Lewis.
