Spaceworks Tacoma seeks artists for downtown installations

Spaceworks Tacoma is looking for artists from Washington or Oregon State to create temporary art installations in interior window storefronts in downtown Tacoma July 15 through Oct. 31, 2011.

“For this next round of installations, we’re looking for works that are particularly interactive and take advantage of the warm weather when there is more foot traffic,” said City of Tacoma Arts Administrator Amy McBride.

Spaceworks Tacoma is a joint initiative of the City of Tacoma, Shunpike and the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber of Commerce designed to fill empty storefronts and vacant space in downtown Tacoma with active art exhibits.

Selected applicants will receive a $500 stipend, all-inclusive. Applications for ‘Spaceworks Tacoma: Round 4’ will be accepted until May 23, 2011. Visit or for full details and an application.
