One year ago, a group of 16 local Black and POC artists gathered to create a colorful and powerful message in downtown Spokane, painting the Black Lives Matter mural along the side of ad agency Seven2 and 14Four’s offices on west Main Avenue. The mural’s unveiling was a bright spot amid a challenging year, as BLM protests and demands for justice and equality continued across the U.S. The mural’s presence remains a beacon of hope and solidarity for our region’s BIPOC community and its allies. Throughout July, several of the artists who contributed to Spokane’s BLM mural are together once again for Terrain’s featured gallery show, Power to the People - Stick It To the Wall. The nonprofit’s gallery showcases new works by Carl Richardson, Sarah Torres, Shantell Jackson, Robert Lloyd, Ohjunsoo, Emma Noyes, Jiemei Lin, Remelisa Cullitan and Reinaldo Gil Zambrano. Don’t miss it.
Power to the People - Stick It to the Wall • Through July 31; open Thu-Sat from 6-8 pm • Free • Terrain Gallery • 304 W. Pacific Ave. • terrainspokane.com and blm.terrainspokane.com
