Art Bus to Make Two Spaceworks Stops

This 3rd Thursday, Tacoma’s Art Bus will stop by two exciting Spaceworks events:

Culture Looming” a week-long performance by Priscilla Dobler.  Viewers are invited to step inside a Woolworth display window to see Dobler in action weaving colorful cotton threads on a floor loom.  Some of the textiles will be for sale.  All proceeds and some of the textiles will be donated to a nearby homeless shelter.

Whew!” Scott Scoggin will be showing work at the downtown post office (1102 A Street Tacoma) including limited edition silkscreened prints (culmination of his year long public poster project), paper sculptures, and other visual things. Scott will be there all day long, however things will really get going when Kye Alfred Hillig plays in the evening probably around 7:30. Snacks and refreshments will be provided.
