Throughout the past month, the region’s collective events calendar has been packed with all things arts, from performances to gallery openings and much more. October is indeed one of the busiest times of year for artists and arts supporters around the Inland Northwest. To cap another successful Create Spokane Arts Month, head to the Spokane Arts Awards to celebrate artistic support and achievement, and to find out who the city’s next official Poet Laureate will be. The fourth and final Spokane Arts Grant Award (SAGA) — a $10,000 award — is also being presented to one deserving finalist. Proceeds of the event will support Spokane Arts’ ongoing programs, including public murals and the “Meet the Makers” documentary series.
Sat, Nov. 4 from 7-10 pm • $30/artists, students, seniors; $75/general • McGinnity Room • 116 W. Pacific • spokanearts.org/create-spokane
