Newest episode of artTown has landed

5 Mar

The City of Tacoma’s Media and Communications Office – in partnership with the Office of Arts & Cultural Vitality – has released a new episode of artTown, a cultural documentary-style TV initiative exploring Tacoma’s emergence as a major creative hub in the Pacific Northwest.

In this episode:

  • Get a behind-the-scenes look at The Grand Cinema’s 253 Short Film Competition as one team writes, shoots, and edits a 253 second short film in 72 hours
  • Visit the unique studio of jewelry designer Cheryl DeGroot
  • Explore Floating Life Forms, a public art piece on the Thea Foss Esplanade created by Tacoma artist Ed Kroupa
  • Hear what inspires the beat in Antonio Gomez’s music
  • Learn how art is being used to engage community and energize public spaces in the Lincoln District Revitalization Project

Silong Chhun talks about his community engagement work in the Lincoln District.

Launched in 2013, the series has earned numerous awards and features diverse perspectives on a variety of creative disciplines. Offering a more holistic look at creativity in Tacoma, artTown stretches beyond what people might traditionally think of as “creative” – such as fine art, music or dance – to spotlight other creative areas of interest that have flourished in Tacoma like fashion, innovative education practices, architecture and more.
