Art Slam in Tacoma WA

Art Slam November 21, 20087 - 9 pm, doors open at 6:30 pm Rialto Theater, 310 S. 9th Avenue Free to the public
In celebration of the 7th anniversary of Tacoma’s Art at Work month, the Tacoma Arts Commission is hosting an Art Slam on Friday, November 21st. Doors open at 6:30 and the event runs from 7 to 9 pm at the Rialto Theater in downtown Tacoma.
What is an Art Slam? In a fast-paced format, a selection of work by local artists will be projected on the big screen. Spoken word artists will also perform as part of this year’s show. An accompanying description of artists’ work and contact information will be included in a program. Artists of all mediums and genres will show their work, ranging from the very accomplished to the up and coming. Everyone presents their work in the same format. The Art Slam is a place for artists and art enthusiasts to gather and share their work in a non-competitive atmosphere. The event is meant to be a fun, relaxed and inspiring evening, reminding us why we create art in the first place.
Join us for a reception in the Rialto lobby following the event, allowing community members an opportunity to mingle.
