Hard to believe, but Tacoma’s Art at Work Month is 10 years old. That’s 10 years of studio tours, organized events, artist promotion and workshops, all courtesy of the City of Tacoma Arts Commission. This year offers more of the same, beginning with a kick-off party at the Museum of Glass next Thursday and including new Art Bus tours.
The party, from 6-8:30 p.m. on Nov. 3, will be held this year at the Museum of Glass, switching out from previous years at Tacoma Art Museum. Appetizers, a no-host bar and cake are on offer, plus contemporary dance from BQDanza, fire dancing, an iron and ice pour and barbershop quartet Two Old, Two New. The AMOCAT Awards will also be presented. It’s free.
