Moscow is located in northern Idaho, nestled between Moscow mountain and the beautiful undulating hills of the Palouse. With a small town friendliness and safety, Moscow is also a great location for higher education, being home to the University of Idaho and with Washington State University just across the state line.

Moscow is the "Heart of the Arts"--with the annual Jazz Festival, live music on the town, the Rendezvous in the Park, and summer theatre.

Moscow is also a great place for those who love the outdoors. Camping, mountain biking, snow mobiling, fishing and skiing abound, with some of the best big game and upland game hunting in the world located nearby.

After settlers arrived in 1871, the town became know as "Paradise Valley". In 1877, Samuel Neff filed for a postal permit under the name of Moscow because the area reminded him of his home town of Moscow, Pennsylvania.

In 1875, the city's first store was opened on what is now Main Street. Moscow grew with the arrival of the railroad in 1885. The town became incorporated in 1887 and was later chosen as the site for a land-grant institution, the University of Idaho. Idaho achieved statehood in 1890.

8/18/2014 - 9/13/2014 -  Museum of Art/WSU Fine Arts Faculty Focus: Ann Christenson
Pullman
The Museum of Art/WSU announces a retrospective journey in a Fine Arts Faculty Focus Exhibition by artist Ann Christenson, Aug. 18– Sept. 13. An opening reception will be held 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 28, in the Museum of Art gallery with a talk given by the artist at 7 p.m. Admission to the museum is free. The Museum of Art has a long-standing tradition of presenting work by department of Fine Arts faculty members. Since 2004, these exhibits have alternated large group shows with a biennial exhibit showcasing a recently retired faculty member. This year the museum presents a retrospective exhibit of Ann Christenson's work. Ann Christenson began teaching at WSU in 1990 as a ceramicist. Her work often resembles a confluence of juxtapositions: organic yet geometric, industrial yet primeval, intimate yet worldly, and awkward yet elegant. She draws her influences from her cross-cultural experiences, domestic environment, and the natural world in order to explore space and material. She creates decorative ceramic forms that disrupt convention and echo an unexpected beauty. Intuition and improvisation often come into play, and the diversity of ceramic art throughout the ages fuels her creations. The Museum of Art is located on Wilson Road across from Martin Stadium in the Fine Arts Center on the WSU Pullman campus. Gallery hours are Monday - Saturday, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., open until 7 p.m. on Thursdays and closed on Sundays. For more information please contact the museum at 509-335-1910 or visit our website at http://museum.wsu.edu. This exhibit is funded by the members of the Museum of Art/WSU and the Samuel H. and Patricia W. Smith Arts Endowment Fund.

9/4/2014 -  Heaven Can Wait
Pullman
Heaven Can Wait Directed By Shirlee Hennigan Rated PG September 4th - September 21st, 2014 The classic play tells the story of Joe Pendleton, a professional boxer and pilot who, when his plane flight does awry, has his soul pulled from his body before he has died. In Heaven, Mr. Jordan, the chief angel, is forced to find him a new body. He ends up using the form of a rich man recently murdered by his wife. The hijinx begins when Joe as Jonathan Farnsworth, falls for the lovely Bette, and reunites with his manager Max.
