March 10, 2021 (Moscow, Idaho) —
The Third Street Gallery is excited to announce the public opening of its latest exhibition, Dear Moscow,
Mon., March 10. Dear Moscow
features illustrated letters from 61 community members. Submissions were received from long-time community members, students of every age and individuals expressing gratitude for Moscow.
The exhibition celebrates the 110th
anniversary of Moscow City Hall’s construction and its previous use as a post office. Participants were encouraged to submit images and writing by mail. Artists frequently employ the Postal Service as a collaborator in the delivery of their works, making mail art the perfect medium to express appreciation for the history and community of Moscow.
Public viewing hours are Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through April 2. Visitors are asked to observe social distancing protocols and wear a mask while inside City Hall. Single-use masks are available at the east entrance.

The Third Street Gallery is located on the second and third floors of Moscow City Hall.
The Third Street Gallery is a space for art in the heart of downtown Moscow. City of Moscow Arts Staff and members of the Moscow Arts Commission have worked together to create artistic direction for the Third Street Gallery since the gallery’s beginnings in 1998. The gallery features works in a wide range of media, subject matter and content while presenting a curatorial vision open to all cultures and art forms. By including the work of established and emerging makers from the Palouse and the broader Inland Northwest, the Third Street Gallery celebrates the creative excellence of the region in a well-loved public space.
The Third Street Gallery features artwork on the second and third floors inside Moscow City Hall. The building was designed by architect James Knox Taylor in 1911 and was formerly the Moscow Federal Building. Entered in the National Register of Historic Places in 1973 as a Second Renaissance Revival brick building, the structure now houses City offices and meeting spaces such as the City Council Chambers. The Third Street Gallery is an essential part of this building, as it brings art into the center of civic life in the City of Moscow.
