Artists will open the doors of the historic Tacoma post office building this month to celebrate the creative reactivation of the downtown Tacoma landmark.
On Thurs., June 19, between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m., visitors are invited to participate in the Tacoma Post Office Building Art Walk. The event will feature artists exhibiting and performing their work, tours of artist studios, special screenings and installations, and a happy hour in the new Post Hall event space. Highlights include the “Luzon Memorial Exhibition,” a special exhibition curated by Jori Adkins that memorializes the historic Luzon building; Spaceworks Artscapes Installations by Jennifer Chushcoff and Erin Dengerink; and a screening of “The Believables,” a documentary exploring the puppetry of Jeremy Gregory.
The 104-year-old Tacoma Post Office Building is located at 1102 A St. in downtown Tacoma.
The event is a partnership between Spaceworks Tacoma, A Street Associates, and Power Property Consultants. Sponsors include the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber, City of Tacoma, Greater Tacoma Community Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, Americans for the Arts, and Ovation TV.
