May 18, 2023: Story Time at the Carrousel, Frank Matsura, Spokane Sisters' Art Group

Who's on TA(P)? Jill Reeves, Michael Holloman, Anne-Claire Mitchell, Lacey Barlow, Sara Delane and Azadeh Weber

This week's episode of the Thursday Arts (P)review — where the "p" is parenthetical because we look both forward and back — features the following:

  • Jill Reeves, the community engagement manager for Riverfront Park. She gives the details on Story Time at the Carrousel, a free early literacy event and activity for families with preschool-aged children. The next Story Time is tomorrow, May 19.
  • Michael Holloman, an associate professor of art at Washington State University, and Anne-Claire Mitchell, and independent curator and art consultant. They've co-curated the exhibition “Frank S. Matsura: Portraits from the Borderland,” which runs at the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture until November 26.
  • Lacey Barlow, Sara Delane and Azadeh Weber of the Spokane Sisters' Art Group. Their humanities-focused collective represents refugees from Libya, Syria and Afghanistan as well as immigrants from Jordan, Indonesia, Pakistan and Russia. They recently received a Spokane Arts Grant Award (SAGA) to organize and host a series of workshops celebrating the art and culture of the Muslim world.

The Thursday Arts (P)review airs every Thursday at 12pm on KPBX with a roundup of arts-related news and information from across the Inland Northwest.
