Re: Tacoma Art Museum’s “Hide/Seek” exhibit.

What is all the fuss about? After attending “Hide/Seek” at TAM, I was quite surprised to see some negative letters to the editor, especially written by those who have not attended this exhibit.

This is a once-in-a-life time opportunity to see some amazing art. It does not matter what religious views you hold dear, how you feel about sexuality, or even what political party you belong to; this is a wonderful collection of art that will keep you thinking for a long time.

In one location you have the opportunity to see works by Georgia O’Keeffe, Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, Thomas Eakins and many more without the expense of a plane ticket and lodging to New York City.

While touring the exhibit with my husband, I felt proud of Tacoma, proud of TAM and very excited for all those who will see this impressive art exhibit. And as a parent I will be bringing my two children to see this exhibit simply for the fact that it is special, unique and a great learning experience.

I encourage everyone to go see this exhibit and judge for yourself.
