Tacoma Art Museum joins other local museums in staying open late (5–8 pm) and free to the public on the third Thursday of every month. Enjoy all of our exhibitions, as well as additional programming and entertainment.
Ekphrasis, Greek for “description,” is a longstanding genre of poetry inspired by visual arts. The workshop will begin with a short discussion of ekphrastic poetry, followed up with in-gallery writing inspired by the artwork.
This workshop is part of Write253‘s WordPlay series of writing workshops, sponsored by the Tacoma Arts Commission.
Participate in a conversation with prominent Tacoma community members that reflects on the legacy of racism, a recurring theme in the exhibition 30 Americans. Panelists will consider how racism has affected the art world, our local community, and current social and political positioning in America.
Moderator: Tacoma Mayor Marilyn Strickland

Serenity Wise, Director of Community Engagement at Northwest African American Museum in Seattle
