Tacoma Art Museum is opening up for the after-work crowd during March, April and June with a series of events from 5-8 p.m. every Thursday. Admission is not always free, but every Thursday will offer different groups and activities, plus more time to look at the galleries, particularly the upcoming GLBT portraiture show, “Hide/Seek.”

“We want to give people as many opportunities as we can to see “Hide/Seek” said TAM communications director Lisa McKeown. “And we realize many people work until 5 p.m.”

Late Night Thursday events include:

March 22: Tacoma’s 100th Monkey party, getting the arts community together with live music, bring-to-share refreshments and local art tiles by Claudia Riedener for $5.

March 29: Tweetup with Hotel Murano is a Twitter- and Facebook-promoted event co-sponsored by the Hotel Murano, involving prizes and free admission.

April 5: Tacoma Runners gather at the museum, go for a run and return for art and drinks, along with an art project in the studio and a shoe drive. Free admission.

April 12: University of Puget Sound Night invites UPS students to visit the gallery and enter a drawing to win a “Hide/Seek” exhibition catalog.
