Women's Votes, Women's Voices
This large exhibit traces how Washington women won the right to vote through the life of our country. Then asked the question, "Should the voting age in Washington be dropped to age 17." Children are encouraged to write their ideas on postcards. Some of the answers posted were thoughtful and provocative, others were funny. The best? "The voting age should be lowered because people come of age at 17 in the wizarding world." Harry Potter readers chuckled.
Timothy c. Ely: Line of Sight
This artist creates extraordinary handmade books that have elements of both science and art. Completely fascinating.
My favorite of the exhibits, this gave examples of clothing women in the Spokane area wore over the last 250 years.
American Indian Collection
My favorite parts of this exhibit were the many examples of native American bead work.
|The Bridge at Spokane Falls|
It's a bit of a thrill to walk over the modern bridge that spans that same canyon, especially when the water flow is high due to the spring runoff from the surrounding mountains.
