Guess who started art on the Avenue seven years ago? For those of you that don’t recall those early years it was the Checkerboard Bar with their good friends at the Flying Pig.

The first year saw 12 artist participate – a huge success! We’re excited about how far the event has come since 2011 – we now have over 70 artists participating, live music, a Kid Zone, and so much more. This year we are happy to share that the Checkerboard Bar is one again hosting an artist this year – Mindy Moon.

We invite you to stop in at the Checkerboard during Art on the Ave this Saturday, September 30th from noon to 6 pm (live music until 9 pm), Sprague Avenue (Madelia to Napa), Spokane, WA 99202.

Please also visit them online at and on Facebook.
