Serious journalists aren’t supposed to be publicly excited about things, but I think this one is pretty neat.
“Words,” the temporary art installation that was a hit last summer at downtown Tacoma’s Tollefson Plaza, will be back Saturday, the city announced today.
Tacoma artist James Grayson Sinding will drop hundreds of hand-painted wooden letters onto the plaza at 2 p.m. People can create messages until the end of the month.
The installation is supported by Spaceworks Tacoma and the Tacoma Arts Commission’s Tacoma Artists Initiative Program. “Words” is presented in conjunction with the Tacoma Art Museum’s “Free Summer Community Festival: Best of the Northwest.”
This exhibit really livened up the space last year. It was fun to see what people wrote and how the messages changed each day. I think I’ll take my toddler this year, since he’s starting to recognize some letters.
