Art at Work Month Activities
The Tacoma Arts Commission is seeking submissions of arts activities happening during our ninth annual Art at Work: Tacoma Arts Month this November. We are looking for a variety of activities spanning all categories of art including but not limited to music, visual art, literary art, dance, theater, and film.
If you will be hosting an exhibition, performance, class, workshop, reception, lecture, tour, artists’ market, celebration, meeting, presentation, or any other programming, let us know. We will list your arts event in the Art at Work: Tacoma Arts Month brochure for free; 15,000 copies of this brochure are distributed throughout the region. We will also be promoting the many events going on throughout the month in a poster, special promo pieces, advertisements and articles in local and regional papers and magazines, and at www.ArtAtWorkTacoma.com.
To qualify, your arts activity must be located within the City of Tacoma limits and occur during the month of November.
Tacoma Studio Tour
Applicants will be juried by a sub-committee of the Tacoma Arts Commission and selected based on the quality of artwork and the overall diversity of the work presented, as well as geographic diversity of the studios. To qualify, your studio must be located within the City of Tacoma limits. A studio is defined as a location where artwork is created on a consistent basis.
The Tacoma Arts Commission will publish a map and publicity materials featuring the studios. The studio tours are free to both the artists and visitors.
