In 2006, the Washington State Historical Society and the “House of Welcome” Longhouse Education and Cultural Center at Evergreen State College began a partnership with the intention of celebrating the best emerging contemporary Native art in the region and providing a venue for an annual exhibition that would highlight the efforts of these artists juried by experts in the field. The result was the first In the Spirit: Contemporary Native Arts exhibition.
Over time, this annual exhibition has become an established regional event featuring works from new and established artists, alike and while the Longhouse has gone on to expand their own Native arts endeavors, they continue to have a valued presence in the legacy that was created for the IN THE SPIRIT exhibition
