Emerge INK! Print Rally
It's a parking lot party! Emerge will be hosting its third annual INK! Print Rally at its downtown Coeur d'Alene gallery. In the center of the parking lot, large-scale prints will be made all evening. This interactive event is for all community members of all ages, as there will be printmaking booths, local artisans and live music. And no need to fear, there will be beer — if you're 21 and up.

Arts Month
Spokane's arts scene is so vibrant, the city dedicates an entire month to celebrate the creativity in this community.

Begins Oct 5, 2019.
