Monday after work, join the opening party for Art at Work Month

After the workday is done come Monday, Oct. 28, join your fellow Tacomans and Tacoma Arts Commission in a free community celebration to kick off Tacoma’s 12th annual Art at Work Month, 6-8:30 p.m. at Foss Waterway Seaport, 705 Dock St.
You will be kept entertained with:
•    music by Taxi Driver
•    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
•    films by Kat Ogden and Carla Barragan
•    museum displays and marine life touch tanks
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 honor the 2013 AMOCAT Arts Award winners and funding recipients. Enjoy appetizers, dessert, and no-host bar.
Mayor Stickland and Deputy Mayor Campbell’s presentation of the 2013 AMOCAT Arts Awards and recognition of the 2013 funding recipients begins at 7:15 p.m.
This event is free and open to the public. No RSVP required. Dress warmly – the party will be over the water and it's fall.
Come and celebrate!
