Applications are now open for the Artscapes track of Spaceworks Tacoma! It’s been almost one year since we launched this award-winning program changing the face of downtown T-town; check out what the critics are saying about it, here.

Spaceworks Tacoma seeks summer storefront installations

Spaceworks Tacoma is seeking artists from Washington or Oregon to create temporary art installations for display in the windows of downtown storefronts from July 15 to Oct. 31, 2011.

“For this next round of installations, we’re looking for works that are particularly interactive and take advantage of the warm weather when there is more foot traffic,” says City of Tacoma Arts Administrator Amy McBride. Spaceworks is a joint initiative of the City of Tacoma, Shunpike and the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber of Commerce designed to fill empty storefronts and vacant space with active art exhibits.

Selected applicants will receive a $500 stipend, all-inclusive. Applications for Spaceworks Tacoma: Round 4 will be accepted until May 23, 2011. Click here for full details and an application. For more information, contact Rebecca Solverson, Community and Economic Development,, (253) 591-5560
