Graffiti garages

// A Mecca of Local Art

An old wooden parking garage downtown Tacoma has become an epicenter for Tacoma graffiti. Local artists come and repaint the walls every week creating a layered history of emotion and expression. The pieces range from simple tags, to complex murals. Cars continue to park here, where they sit among one of the cultural landmarks of Tacoma. Located on Broadway, near the Pantages Theatre, the Graffiti Garages are a source of entertainment for both the artists and graffiti enthusiasts.
