Prichard Gallery receives National Endowment 

The University of Idaho Prichard Art Gallery recently received a $15,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to fund a wildfire photography exhibition.

According to a news release, the grant will allow the gallery to exhibit “Conflagration, the Wildfire Photography of Kari Greer.”

The exhibit “presented in intimate portraits and intense, large photos, uses Greer’s images to foreground presentations and discussions around our relationship to wildlands and our changing environment.”

It will include educational tours for kindergarten through 12th-grade students as well as university students and student firefighters.

Greer will lecture alongside award-winning author Steve Pyne and additional contributors will include the Forest Fire Lookout Association and the Northern Rockies Fire Science Network. Members of UI Fire Ecology and Management will also discuss the change in fire seasons and its future impact.

The exhibition is scheduled for Feb. 16 through April 15, 2018.

More information can be found on UI’s website.

Local businesses participate in Where’s Waldo event

Twenty-five businesses throughout the Palouse are participating in BookPeople of Moscow’s ‘Where’s Waldo’ scavenger hunt — a popular community event now in its sixth year.

Those who find small cutouts of the popular character hidden among the shelves of 10 of those stores can turn their stamped “passport” in at BookPeople and receive a button as well as a $1 off coupon. At least 20 stamps will also enter them in a drawing to win larger Waldo-themed prizes displayed at the bookstore, and players who collect stamps from all 25 are entered in a drawing for a six-volume set of “Where’s Waldo?” books.

Anyone up for the challenge will be able to pick a passport from BookPeople and the other participating locations.

The deadline to turn these passports is 6 p.m. July 27 at BookPeople, and the prize pick-up for the lucky winners will also be held there July 28 and 29.

Rendezvous in the Park

The 35th anniversary of The Rendezvous in the Park concert series begins July 13 and concludes July 15 at East City Park in Moscow. The three-day event will feature various musical artists every evening, with a local warm-up act followed by an opening act before the main performance.

The Thursday headliner is The Lack Family, a family of five performers who began touring in 2009. Friday night’s headlining act is JJ Grey and Mofro, who will perform a mixture of roots and rock music. Saturday night’s closing performance will be headlined by Paul Thorn, a bluesy rock performer.
