100 Stories - A Centennial Exhibition

February 22, 2014 to January 31, 2016

With the end of its first century in sight, the Eastern Washington State Historical Society (dba Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture) is preparing a new exhibit experience that looks forward as much as it looks back. Capitalizing on the MAC's extraordinary collections, 100 Stories will vibrate with enduring and inescapable themes of the American West. Spirited voices will weave stories of history and cultures and art.  This exhibit will demonstrate the MAC's role in maintaining, preserving and interpreting the region.

100 Stories will be told on the MAC campus in Browne's Addition, as well as in relevant locations throughout Spokane and eastern Washington. Many of the artifacts you will see in the galleries have never before been on display. Throughout its two-year run special programming will amplify 100 Stories.  Art and traditional craft demonstrations, living history programs, film, lectures and symposia are among the program considerations.

This exhibit experience is a tribute to the Eastern Washington State Historical Society's first century (April 2016) and a prologue to its second.
