Historic Tacoma’s Postcard Project

Bring one or more 4 X 6” postcards, handcrafted by you of a favorite or most unfavorite Tacoma building. Affix a postcard stamp - 34 cents. Leave room on the back for an address label.

These art postcards can be photos, drawings, digital images, watercolor, collages or any original artwork. Identify your building and/or add some text.

Upon entry each guest will fill in their name and address onto a label: the same number of labels as the cards they brought. After a two hour display of the cards pinned to the walls, the Historic Tacoma board will randomly apply the labels to the accumulated cards and mail them to the attending guests. (YOU will receive a card or cards in the mail depending on how many you brought). If you bring multiples of the same postcard image, we will only display one. . .

Entry guaranteed if you bring a postcard, finger food and/or beverage to share. Learn more about Tacoma’s advocate for important and historic architecture: HISTORIC TACOMA, and thanks to our hosts: Rick Semple and Jori Adkins.
