For centuries people have congregated in specific places in the West to exchange goods, ideas, and cultural practices. From Seattle, San Francisco, Santa Fe, and San Antonio to pueblos and towns, settlements in the West have a vitality that is represented in art. The exhibition showcases the diverse places people have called home and explores the nuances of these thriving sites of cultural exchange.
Places to Call Home: Settlements in the West was organized by Tacoma Art Museum and made possible through the generous support of the Haub Family Endowment.
