Artists activate Tacoma
Spaceworks’ Artscapes program provides support and opportunities to artists in Tacoma and Pierce County. We contract with artists of all abilities to create temporary public art that brings cultural vibrancy and economic strength to our city. Through murals, window installations, exhibits, public engagement projects, and art residency these opportunities have helped artists develop their artistic voice, and further their careers. Since its inception in 2010, Spaceworks has orchestrated hundreds of temporary Artscapes throughout Tacoma.
