9 artists selected for upcoming Spaceworks Tacoma installation

The City of Tacoma announced Thursday that nine local artists have been picked to be showcased in the next installation of Spaceworks Tacoma. The artists include Diane Hansen, Lance Kagey, Janette Ryan, Brian Hutcheson, RSVR, Kelly June Mitchell, Mary Rothlisberger and Lauren McCleary. Maria Meneses will be showing at the Tollbooth gallery. Spaceworks Tacoma is a joint initiative of the City of Tacoma and Shunpike designed to activate empty storefronts. The initiative makes no- and low-cost temporary space available to artists, fledgling creative entrepreneurs, organizations, and community groups by placing them in unused commercial properties. The new installations will be completed and viewable in Tacoma’s Theater District by mid-November. For more information, visit http://www.SpaceWorksTacoma.com .
