Art Events for Sustainable September 2011

It’s been a wonderful Eastern Washington summer of boating on the lake and wearing no socks. I took a few months off from this blog, but I am now energized and back in the right frame of mind to continue blogging. I expect to make some cosmetic changes to the site as well, so don’t be surprised if it looks different soon…

September has already arrived, and I’m looking forward to Fall arts and harvest time! You probably came here to ready about art events, so here it is: Sustainable September returns to Eastern Washington with food events, presentations, contests and a LEED certified kickoff luncheon.

Sustainable September 2011 arts and entertainment highlights include: 

MAIN STREET FAIR: The fifth annual Sustainable Uprising celebrates sustainability and community. Vendors, music and fun for all. More info here.

  1. There are some fascinating deadlines on this article however I don’t know if I see all of them heart to heart. There’s some validity but I will take hold opinion until I look into it further. Good article , thanks and we want more! Added to FeedBurner as nicely

    1. I think you are saying that you are unsatisfied with these events, and I would be in the same boat with you. While this is nice start, Spokane artists could have participated in Sustainable September a lot more! Maybe there were more events going on, but I didn’t hear about them.
