SPOTLIGHT: High Street
High Street Plaza in downtown Pullman has turned into a hub of artistic activity over this past summer. Visitors and residents experienced weekly live music from May through October Thursday nights beginning at 6:00pm. Musicians from around the Palouse are featured at Music on Main and provided an excellent opportunity to get downtown and explore shops, dining opportunities and make some new friends. Find more details at facebook.com/MusicOnMain.
High Street has also become home to the "Wings of Washington" mural. This mural was created as an interactive piece featuring wings from various Washington State animals and insects. Thanks to the efforts of the City of Pullman Arts Commission, WSU Center for Civic Engagement, WSU Office of the President, WSU Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, Shannon Family and the Pullman Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center for making this possible.
