The Tacoma Art Museum welcomes the 100th Monkey on Thursday, March 22, 5-8pm! TAM is hosting T-town’s favorite, no-invitation-required social during the opening week of the internationally-acclaimed exhibition, Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture. You can check out this major exhibition of art addressing questions of gender and sexual identity in its West Coast debut, and the outstanding 10th Northwest Biennial, too.

What is the 100th Monkey? An ongoing artists’ schmoozefest at which attendees pony up finger food and *libations share with new faces as well as veteran party primates. For this event, artists Claudia Riedener, Lynn Di Nino and Di Morgan-Graves are creating a limited edition of tiles on the theme of “gender identity and sexual orientation” to be available for $5 each the night of the ape fest. Admission to the museum is free with purchase. Music by Duo Rubicund. More information at

* Please bring white wine only, please.
