Salon Series

Salon Series

It is through conversation that communities thrive. These programs are intended to bring conversation back into our modern lives – welcome to the afternoon
Salon Series.

Inspired by the 16th Century European movement, the "salon" was an informal intellectual gathering popular through the late 19th Century. Today's salons take many forms, from formal lectures to informal get-togethers at friends' homes.

These programs will draw on local speakers who want to share what they are passionate about. Our 21st Century version of the salon is a venue where local ideas matter.

Join the Moses Lake Museum & Art Center in the Civic Center Auditorium for select 1st Wednesday's throughout the year.

Interested in becoming an afternoon speaker? Please email Jenni Shelton. The museum offers a $100 honorarium. Please no sales presentations.

Programs begin at 3pm.
