Welcome to Part 10! Feel free to read this entire entry right now, but don’t forget to check out Parts 1-9 to get a feel for the whole ‘A’ frame exhibition which was shown about twenty times this summer/fall. You can start here. Part 10 finds us in the middle of the exhibition and now you get to see Brooke Kiener. You may have seen Brooke on tv, or you may have met her in person out at Whitworth. You may have met her presiding over the Spokane Arts Fund. It takes a ton of commitment and patience to step up to the plate and lead. It’s a lot harder than it looks, but Brooke makes it look easy.
The portrait on the left is the largest photo (and because of its height also the photo closest to your eyes), so it should definitely grab your attention and make you want to hug Brooke and get closer to the ‘A’ frame itself.
Next comes the quote that allows each participant to say something about their city, Spokane. Some people say nice things about which places to visit in Spokane; others share some pretty deep observations – both are welcome. Below that is a text that briefly describes some of the things this participant has done to make Spokane a better place to live, work, and visit, in the arts, music, and culture arenas. Below that are three portraits that serve to more fully “portray” the participant, followed by the organizations/projects they’ve worked with and a way to find out more information about them. Brooke’s detail shots include her hands (an important actor’s tool) as well as her marking up a script (a director’s task).
These ‘A’ frames are much more impressive when you see them all together and printed at 2 feet by 4 feet, but at least you can now see them on the web. Try to get out to a exhibition to experience the full effect. And don’t forget that nominations are still open for S50. Take a moment out of your day to tell us about someone who has been working to make Spokane a better place to live, work, and visit, especially in the Arts, Music, and Culture scenes. Thanks!
