Artscapes

Artists activate Tacoma

Through Spaceworks’ Artscapes program, artists of all abilities create murals, installations, and exhibits that bring cultural vibrancy and economic strength to our city. When artists are provided the opportunity to display in public, they push their work to the next level, and inspire the community. Since its inception in 2010, Spaceworks has orchestrated hundreds of temporary Artscapes throughout Tacoma. While these projects may not be permanent, their effects are lasting..
