The Tacoma Post Office Building partners with Spaceworks to host an evening of art exhibits, open studios, short film screenings, plus a Spaceworks happy hour in the new event space Post Hall with DJ Schematik. Buzz has been steadily growing about the creative activation of this building and this event is your chance to explore it first-hand.

In June of this year, 300-400 people came out to the first Tacoma Post Office Building ART WALK. The night was a big success with a colorful array of artwork, performances, film screenings, mixing and mingling.  Check out this video of the nights events created by Joe Hunich and Duane Shrode:

This is a great opportunity for Tacoma to have a large, central space where artists can work side by side, events will bring the crowd, and businesses can prosper. These art walk events get people through the space, learning about the various rental opportunities, and imagining themselves running a studio or business within it. This event celebrates the creative use of an important building, and pushes forth the effort towards it becoming a true hub for the arts in Tacoma.
