If you take away one thing from our annual guide to the Inland Northwest's art scene, I hope it's the idea that art is for everyone. Even a cursory glance through the incredible array of art openings, live performances, readings and recitals quickly makes one realize that the idea of "art" as a stuffy pursuit best left to the so-called "elites" is nonsense. The rewards of experiencing and making art are there for all of us, and they don't require a top hat or tiara.
See you out there.
