Though the wave is untitled, naming rights are available for a $1 million donation to Tacoma Art Museum.
Playing on the Wave
In recent years, Tacoma Art Museum has begun to experiment with the wave, with full support and encouragement from Rhodes. Dale Chihuly’s Ma Chihuly’s Floats–multi-colored Niijima Floats that are now part of the museum’s permanent collection–drift across the wave during the warm summer months. In 2007, local artist trio SuttonBeresCuller lowered a sailboat into the courtyard to create Ship in a Bottle as part of the 8th Northwest Biennial.
