Ever wished you could see both of Tacoma’s art museums for just one admission price? For five days in November you can.
The Museum of Glass and Tacoma Art Museum are offering joint admission tickets November 11–15. The museums say it’s to encourage patrons to visit both sites while they have solo exhibitions by Native American artists.
The ticket price is $15 for regular adult admission to both museums. TAM’s normal admission price is $9 and MOG’s is $12.
Here’s more on the artists from the press release:
At TAM: Northwest artist Joe Feddersen is a printmaker, basket weaver, and glass artist who combines traditional forms and symbols drawn from his Native American heritage with contemporary imagery. His show, Joe Feddersen: Vital Signs, presents his highly-regarded work which explores the relationship of culture and the landscape, urban place markers and indigenous designs. The resulting work is both coolly modern and warmly expressionistic.
At MOG: Preston Singletary: Echoes, Fire, and Shadows, is a mid-career survey of Singletary’s work which combines two of the Northwest’s most prominent artistic influences—traditional Native American designs and the medium of glass. For nearly two decades, Singletary has melded the symbols, patterns and legends of his Tlingit heritage with the dynamism of the Studio Glass movement, creating a distinctive and powerful body of work.
In conjunction with Echoes, Fire, and Shadows, MOG will welcome Singletary and Marcus Amerman, an enrolled member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, to the Hot Shop November 11 – 15. Amerman creates works using traditional beadwork techniques infused with his own style of stitching beads into realistic, pictorial images, rather than patterns. He and Singletary will collaborate on new designs during this residency.
On Sunday, November 15, all three artists will participate in a panel discussion at 2 p.m. in the Museum of Glass Theater.
