Bovill Opera House

Believed to have been built in the first decade of the 20th century, the Bovill Opera House served for five decades as the entertainment and social center for the town of Bovill and its surrounding communities. Although used primarily as a “moving picture hall,” the Bovill Opera House hosted dances, performances, as well as public hearings and gatherings. In the 1930s the upstairs was transformed into a miniature golf course and later used as a roller skating-rink. While there is a metal sign readings “Bovill Historical Museum” it was apparently never used as a museum on a consistent basis. The building is no longer open to the public.

Canoe Wave

Engineer and sculptor Christopher Fennell welded over 50 used canoes together as a tribute to Lewis and Clark and the Nez Perce Tribe. The sculpture, installed in 2010, is 64 feet long and 24 feet high.  The mural of rippling water and swimming fish behind the sculpture creates a lovely backdrop for this most unusual and dramatic piece! Floating in a pond nearby is a companion piece: two waterlily fountains, also made from canoes.

Canoe Wave is at the northwest edge of Lewiston, overlooking the Snake River.  The best view is when driving the Hwy 12 bridge from Clarkston into Lewiston. You can park behind Art Beat and walk around the sculpture.

Congrats, Julene Ewert!

The City of Moscow and Farmers Market Commission just announced that Julene Ewert, a trail guide artist and one of 2dnw’s graphic designers, has been selected to create the visual design toolkit for the Moscow Farmers Market.  This special design project is intended to serve the brand identity of the Moscow Farmers Market. Ewert will work closely with Community Events Division staff to create a style guide and program graphics that are complementary to existing City of Moscow branding. The graphics and style guide will be used to create a comprehensive visual look for this historic community event.  Julene demonstrated the ability to create a design toolkit which will bridge the Moscow Farmers Market’s identity as a beloved past-time for both locals and visitors, while also recognizing its history as a leader in developing the region’s food system.  Congrats, Julene!  We love your work and can’t wait to see what you come up with!  Visit the Art By Julene trail guide listing and Julene’s website to see more of her spectacular work!

Etsuko Ichikawa: Broken Poems of Fireflies at WSU Museum of Art, May 26, 2020 – March 19, 2021

Etsuko Ichikawa is a Tokyo-born, Seattle-based, multi-media artist. She worked with Dale Chihuly as a studio assistant for eight years and became independent in 2003. The exhibition Etsuko Ichikawa: Broken Poems of Fireflies begins within a video gallery featuring a trilogy of films created over the past five years. Equal parts performance documentation and cinematic experience, the videos reveal the dramatic potential of simple gestures made in extraordinary settings. Moving into a second gallery, visitors will encounter a room-sized installation with pulsating glass orbs. These firefly-like forms conjure the artist’s childhood memories, but also through their irradiation, connect us to nuclear histories both far and near.

May 26, 2020 – March 19, 2021 | Exhibition currently open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1-4 p.m

First Indian Presbyterian Church

Located on the first Kamiah town site in East Kamiah, the Rev. and Mrs. Henry T. Cowley organized the First Church on December 25, 1871, with Hol-Lol-Sote-Tote (Lawyer) as the first Elder. In the summer of 1873, the government built the present church. The Rev. Henry Spalding spent 1872 and 1873 doing church work here during the construction. Sue McBeth had charge of the Presbyterian Mission at the time that the First Church was built. Her sister Kate McBeth joined her in 1879. The church and cemetery is still in use today and stand in quiet dignity at the original location on Highway 12.

Helio-Terra

“Helio-Terra,” 2012, Wren Welcome Garden, created by Robert M. Horner.  Helio-Terra is a mass of locally quarried earth that is compacted into a form resembling a seed.  The geometry of artwork is gesture towards the agricultural heritage of Moscow, as well as the grain towers that flank the site.  The seed is a concentration of nutrient that gives forth the energy necessary to yield future sustenance, and thus serves as a metaphor for the community of Moscow.

Helio-Terra is at the south entrance to Moscow, at the intersection of State Highways 8 and 95.

Historic Rosalia

An easy and worthy detour from Highway 195 in southeastern Washington is the town of Rosalia.  It’s the gateway to the Palouse Scenic Byway for starters and driving in from the southern highway exit takes you right under one of the iconic railroad bridges that Rosalia is known for.  Built in 1915, these bridges are on the National Historic Register and are understandably popular with photographers.

Stay on the business loop into town for a short cruise or walk down Main street and look for Fast Freddy sitting in his 57 Ford Fairlane parked in front of a retired gas station that now serves as the current Mayor’s “hobby shop.” Freddy is a hit at Halloween!

Another historic gas station, still known to locals as the “Texaco Station,” was restored to its original glory and turned into the Rosalia Visitor Resource and Interpretive Center. Exhibits and interior amenities are getting an upgrade so the Center is closed for now, but if you are looking for a historical experience, you are in luck!  City Hall hosts a museum on its second floor and the Steptoe Battlefield State Park is at the edge of town.

Where and When
Fast Freddy is parked at 704 S. Whitman and the “Texaco Station” is at 533 S. Whitman. You can drive or stroll through anytime.  City Hall Museum is at 110 W. 5th street and is open from 9 – 3, M-F.

Latah Trail

The 12-mile trail between Moscow and Troy was completed in October 2008. It is a fully paved, 10-foot wide trail intended for use by pedestrians, bicyclists, in-line skaters, wheel-chair operators, cross-country skiers and others with non-motorized transportation. In August 2009, Latah County acquired ownership of the old rail bed continuing 4 miles southeast of Troy. This next section of trail is currently an unimproved gravel/rock pathway that follows Bear Creek. When this is paved, it will provide an unbroken, 30 mile path from Pullman to Juliaetta.

Owned by the McIntosh family, Art and Doug, Michelle and Brenda, LCV invites you to come swirl, sniff, sip, and take home some of their award winning wines and milled whole grain flours and mixes.

Maialina Pizzeria Napoletana

Maialina Pizzeria Napoletana, a popular downtown Moscow restaurant since 2013, is an authentic Neapolitan Pizzeria serving artisan pizza handcrafted by trained pizzaioli in the tradition of Naples, Italy, the birthplace of pizza. As with their other Moscow restaurant, Sangria Grille, chefs George Skandalos and Carly Lilly source both imported Italian and fresh, local ingredients from farmers and artisans in our area to prepare pizzas and rustic Italian dishes.

The Maialina website makes George and Carly’s priorities clear: “Our local farmers, ranchers, growers make what we do possible. We believe in the history and tradition of local agriculture and local, healthy food. Which is why our eggs, pork, beef, and many weekly hand truckloads of produce comes from straight from Moscow area family farms. We know our farmers. We’ve been to their farms. We love what they do for our community and we see it as a great honor to prepare and serve these lovely things to you, so we can all share in tradition and love of place.”

New art exhibit “The Vote: 100 Years” now showing at Libey Gallery, Colfax

“The Vote: 100 Years,” an acrylic collage exhibit by Colfax artist Nancy Rothwell, is now showing at the Libey Gallery at Colfax Library. In these new works, Rothwell reviews the influence of the 19th Amendment which granted women the right to vote when it was ratified in 1920.

Rothwell’s show reflects on the social and political events of 100 years ago in the United States, and reminds us of the courage it took for women to stand up for their belief that all women should be given the right to vote.  In this exhibit, she uses visual symbols such as roadmaps and house keys to comment on the long, difficult struggle that women faced and the bravery they showed during years of agitation and protest.

Rothwell’s show runs through January 2021. Libey Gallery at Colfax Library is located at 102 S. Main Street. Hours are Mondays – Wednesdays 10-5, Thursdays – Fridays 10-6, and Saturdays 1-5.  For more information visit www.whitco.lib.wa.us or call 509-397-4366.

More of Rothwell’s work can be found on her website at www.nancyrothwell.com.

Perkins House

James Allen Perkins came to the area in 1870, when he was 29 years old. He and Thomas Smith traveled from Waitsburg to set up a sawmill at the suggestion of Anderson Cox, who speculated that the valley along the South Fork of the Palouse might make a fine location for a new settlement. They proceeded to build a log cabin with timber hauled from Walla Walla. Both Smith and Perkins staked out property. The two men split the valley, Perkins taking the northern part. He purchased a pre-emption on 160 acres at $2.50/acre. The line separating the two parcels ran east to west and later became Last Street.

White Spring Ranch Museum and Archive Library

White Spring Ranch is listed on the National Historical Registry and was the homestead of early settlers in the wheat producing Palouse area south of Moscow Idaho. John Lorang and Mary Gesellchen Lorang created a successful farm and they and three generations of the family preserved all its history from its founding in 1885 to the present day. Thousands of artifacts are in the archive library collection. The museum is supported by grants and donations and by students and faculty from Washington State University and the University of Idaho.

With a minimal budget of grants and donations, we have become a gathering site for students, artists and volunteers with all kinds of skills to restore the: 1878 Log cabin, c.1880’s Curio cabin, c.1873-1904 Historical Farmhouse and 160 years of letters, journals, books and photographs into an onsite and online library.
