Forgotten Stories: Northwest Public Art of the 1930s

On going

Online Tour

tacomaartmuseum.org

Enjoy a virtual tour of Forgotten Stories: Northwest Public Art of the 1930s which opened on February 22, 2020 led by Margaret Bullock, Interim Chief Curator and Curator of Collections and Special Exhibitions. During the economic hard times of the 1930s, U.S. government art projects under the Works Progress Administration [WPA] and other agencies created a wealth of public art and supported communities across the country. In the Northwest, hundreds of artists were employed and thousands of artworks created but their stories are almost unknown. This exhibition offers an extensive overview of the bounty and variety of work created in our region and brings forgotten treasures back to view.
