Artists activate Tacoma
Through Spaceworks’ Artscapes program, artists 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.
Where to View
Featured Artscapes projects
RBG Tribute Mural
A mural tribute to the life and work of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
9th Street Reconciliation Orchestra
“This collection of stringed instruments offers us a chance to imagine a harmonious ensemble of east and west that never could be — but should have been.”
Re-emerge in Healing
This mural is about uniting local environmental justice issues by coming together in healing. Specifically, it addresses the Northwest Detention Center (NWDC) and the Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) issues by highlighting some figureheads in these local movements alongside images of migratory animals.
