While the Inland Northwest has been, for the most part, incredibly lucky this season that wildfire smoke hasn’t stuck around for too long, we’re not out of the woods yet. Take a moment to reflect on the wide-reaching impact air quality has on communities at the closing reception of a month-long installation at the renowned Kolva-Sullivan Gallery in downtown Spokane. Created by Laboratory guest artist Nicole Chochrek, Air Has No Borders uses lights to indicate daily air quality in Spokane. The artist also invited members of the community to share stories to help develop a “collective construction of ideas around air quality and the impact fire season continues to have.” Learn what’s been gathered for the exhibit in the past month, meet the artist and share your experiences at the installation’s closing reception.
