Art exhibit marks Tacoma Community College's 50th Anniversary

Tacoma Community College will continue its 50th Anniversary celebration with a month-long exhibit featuring art presented by faculty and alumni.

An opening reception for the exhibit will be held between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Weds., April 1, at The Gallery at Tacoma Community College, located at 6501 S. 19th St., Building 4, in Tacoma. Visitors are invited to enjoy snacks and meet the artists. The exhibit will be on display through the month of April. The Gallery is typically open between 12 p.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Visitor parking is available in Lot G. More information is available online here.

In January, Tacoma Community College released The Open Door: A History of Tacoma Community College, a narrative history e-book that shows how students, faculty, staff, and community leaders collaborated to create the college, which opened its doors on Sept. 13, 1965 (see “Tacoma Community College: E-book release party begins 50th Anniversary celebration,” Tacoma Daily Index, Jan. 14, 2015). The e-book and its author, Dale Coleman, were featured in the Tacoma Daily Index last year (see “History Maker: As TCC turns 50, one researcher will tell its story,” Tacoma Daily Index, Sept. 18, 2014″). The e-book is available online here.
