Art at Work Opening Party and AMOCAT Awards
October 28, 2013 at 6:00 pm
Kick off Art at Work Month in style while enjoying appetizers, dessert, and no-host bar. We’ll keep you entertained with music by Taxi Driver, a molten iron pour by Tacoma Community College, contemporary dance by the BareFoot Collective, urban arts by Fab-5, poetry by Tacoma Poet Laureate Lucas Smiraldo, and films by Kat Ogden and Carla Barragan.
You will even have the opportunity to contribute to Diane Hansen’s soon-to-be-installed public art piece, The Locks, by personalizing a padlock to hang on the installation (supplies provided). Experience the newly-renovated Foss Waterway Seaport including a new public art piece, Lot 411 by Bret Lyon, and help us honor the 2013 AMOCAT Arts Award winners and funding recipients.
