The MAC wants to thank the neighborhood.

This just in:
My name is Erica Roberts and I am on the Save the MAC committee. I've spoken at a number of neighborhood council meetings about Save the MAC efforts.  As you know, the MAC received state funding so the museum will remain open!

The Save the MAC committee is planning a "VIP" event for Browne's Addition residents as a way of thanking the neighborhood for their support during the Save the MAC campaign, as well as encouraging their support in the future. We are going to do a "BeGin-esque" type will be on July 6th from 6-8 pm, the DaVinci exhibit will be open with tickets sold at member prices, and we are going to do an ice cream social.

Here's the info:

Who: Browne's Addition residents
What: Ice Cream Social & tour the DaVinci exhibit at a discounted price ($11 member price)
Where: MAC amphitheater
When: July 6th from 6-8 pm
Why: The MAC would like to say "thank you" to Browne's Addition residents for helping to save the MAC!

If you are on Facebook, check out the event page and help get the word out!

This Weekend Is Going To Be Huge!

This is arguably the biggest weekend of the year for Browne's Addition. From ArtFest to ElkFest to the new Leonardo da Vinci exhibit at The MAC to First Friday, there is no shortage of fun things to do in the 'hood.

ArtFest once again kicks off today in Coeur d'Alene park at noon. It will run through the weekend. For more information, check out the schedule provided by The MAC.

Cannon street will be closed down between 2nd and Pacific this weekend for ElkFest. If you are new to the neighborhood (or Spokane for that matter), ElkFest is a weekend of outdoor concerts by some of the coolest local and regional bands around. The Inlander has a preview as well as a schedule of the shows online.

If all that wasn't enough to do this weekend, The Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture is premiering it's Leonardo da Vinci exhibit. It will run until September, but why not check it out while your are out and about in Browne's Addition?

It's weekends like this that make us proud to live in Browne's Addition.
