The Tacoma Art Museum is dedicated to connecting people through art and showcasing and collecting the art of the Northwest. In May 2003, the museum doubled its size with a new facility in the heart of Tacoma's Cultural District. The Antoine Predock-designed building features framed views of Mt. Rainier and a series of elegant galleries that wrap around an open-air interior stone garden.
The galleries showcase traveling national and international exhibitions, as well as selections from the museum's collection of Dale Chihuly glass, and other American, European, and Asian art. The Open Art Studio is available for all visitors to experiment, create, and connect with art.
