Tacoma Studio Tour
Application Deadline: July 22, 2013,
The Tacoma Arts Commission is seeking professional artists who are
willing to open their studios to the public for the Tacoma Studio Tour,
one of the features of Art at Work: Tacoma Arts Month this November. The
emphasis of this tour is on raising visibility of the arts and providing
artistic opportunities for the community to connect to the arts. While
we encourage artists to have work for sale, the intention is not
primarily as a studio sale. Studios will be open on Saturday, November 2
and Sunday, November 3 from 11 am to 5 pm. Artists can choose to be open
on Saturday, Sunday, or both days. The Tacoma Arts Commission will
produce extensive electronic publicity materials including email
newsletters, blog posts, and an interactive website and map. We will
also produce a printed brochure for the Tacoma Studio Tour. The studio
tours are free to both the artists and visitors.
- You must live within the City of Tacoma limits and/or your
working studio must be located within the City of Tacoma limits
- You must provide a demonstration of your art form and/or provide a
hands-on activity for attendees
- You must actively promote the Studio Tours to your own contacts
- If you would like to be a guest at another studio, the above
guidelines still apply. A studio is defined as a location where
artwork is created on a consistent basis.
