Manito Park is a beautiful and beloved park in the heart of my neighborhood, Spokane's South Hill. It's a sprawling 78 acres of native and cultivated landscapes and gardens designed by the Olmstead Bros and established in 1904.
In 2021 I was thrilled to learn that The Friends Of Manito was starting an annual art festival at the park, and jumped on the chance to be part of it. I created several large-scale oil paintings with a botanical theme that echoed the archway structures leading into the Duncan Gardens for that first show in 2021.
I'm very happy to bring some of these Manito designs to wearable form at Cutees Printshop and hope they find fellow Manito lovers out there!
