Upcoming Exhibitions

Black Lives Matter Plaza Installation

The Black Lives Matter Plaza mural is designed to express solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement while celebrating the achievements and contributions of African Americans throughout history. This project is funded by the City of Tacoma and the Tacoma Art Museum through Tacoma Creates, in partnership with the Human Rights Commission’s Racial Justice and Equity Committee.

The BLM Plaza Installation Mural will be on extended view in Tollefson Plaza starting summer 2022. Learn more about the BLM Mural Project Tacoma here.

Luces y Sombras: Images of Mexico | Photographs from the Bank of America Collection

The photographs in Luces y Sombras reflect a broad span of Mexico’s modern history, beginning with the post-Revolutionary era up until the present day. With work by 28 photographers, both native Mexicans and foreigners, this exhibition provides vivid testimony to the character of life in a nation in the throes of reinvention, modernization, and continued change, over the course of the last century. The exhibition reflects many themes embraced by photographers in Mexico: the landscape, urban life, fantasy and, especially among younger generations, gender and invented situations infused with symbolism.

Luces y Sombras: Images of Mexico | Photographs from the Bank of America Collection will be on view at Tacoma Art Museum from October 15, 2022 through February 5, 2023.

This exhibition is made possible through the Bank of America Art in Our Communities program.

Recent Works by Camille Patha (Working Title)

Renowned Northwest painter, Camille Patha, has been creating work for more than 60 years with a tireless, inventive spirit and endless appetite for experimentation. The forced isolation of the pandemic birthed a new body of work that she has been expanding and refining. This exhibition extends the conversation begun in her popular 2014 retrospective at TAM. It surveys new work created between 2020 and 2022 including paintings and pastels as well as mixed media and sculpture.

This exhibition will be on view at Tacoma Art Museum from March 4, 2023 through September 3, 2023.
