Art of the American West:
The Haub Family Collection

This inaugural exhibition of the Haub Family Collection at Tacoma Art Museum spans more than 200 years of work by historic and contemporary artists. The artworks examine ideas of American identity over time, delve into storytelling and mythmaking, and explore the vast American landscape. See how concepts of the West—both real and imagined—have continually changed and evolved and still influence us today.

Dale Chihuly at TAM

Celebrating world-renowned glass artist and Tacoma-native Dale Chihuly, we have given our permanent collection of Chihuly glass a gallery of its own. The collection features examples from many of the artist’s major series including Baskets, Sea Forms, Cylinders, Macchia, Persians, and Venetians. During the warmer summer and fall months, see Ma Chihuly’s Floats, an installation of Niijima Floats installed on Richard Rhodes’ stone wave. Today, Tacoma boasts more installations of Chihuly’s artwork than any other city in the world.
