ENRICHING COMMUNITY

 

The Spokane Valley Arts Council was formed as a not for profit corporation in 2004 with goals of improving the appreciation of art in its many forms and therefore elevating our overall art culture.  Annually for the past eight years, we have produced the Artist Showcase Art Auction.  This art event is a benefit auction whereby the public can interact with professional artists producing what they do best.  The proceeds then go to purchase are objects to benefit our citizens for generations to come.  The artists receive a portion of the proceeds from the event.  We thereby are supporting the creators of the art, the city and its citizens.

The Spokane Valley Arts Council has several fundraising efforts to commission the highest quality of sculptures and monuments to then dedicate back to the city, to enhance and compliment public parks and buildings used to serve the community.

McKellar describes this piece as his interpretation of a legend that is common around the world, in which the sun and moon are husband and wife who only see each other, briefly, twice a day as they pass in the sky.
