Are you a Pierce County artist with existing portable artworks you’d like to sell? The City of Tacoma is accepting applications now through February 13 for existing portable pieces of artwork to be considered for purchase and installation at People’s Community Center. Artists of color are encouraged to apply. Portable artworks include two-dimensional pieces that fall within certain eligibility guidelines. Media can include, but is not limited to: painting, drawing, works on paper, photography, printmaking, digital, collage, mosaics, fiber, mixed-media, and wall-mountable low-relief sculpture.

“People’s Community Center has become such a focal point for the rapidly evolving, highly diverse Hilltop neighborhood. This is a special opportunity for artists of color from the local area to help build and sustain the already welcoming environment of this facility.” – District 3 Council Member Keith Blocker

Funding for this portable works purchase opportunity comes from Metro Parks Tacoma and the City of Tacoma’s Municipal Art Program which dedicates 1 percent of construction costs from public capital projects to the creation of public art. Artworks purchased through this opportunity will become part of the City of Tacoma’s Municipal Art Collection.
