PAL Members Participate in Art Slam

In celebration of the 8th anniversary of Art at Work: Tacoma Arts Month, the Tacoma Arts Commission is hosting an Art Slam on Wednesday, November 18. Doors open at 6:30 and the event runs from 7 to 9 pm at the Rialto Theater in downtown Tacoma.

What is an Art Slam? In a fast-paced format, a selection of work by local visual and performing artists will be projected on the big screen, set to a soundtrack of musical accompaniment. Live dance and spoken word performances will be interspersed between segments of the show. An accompanying description of artists’ work and contact information will be included in a program. Artists of all mediums and genres will show their work, ranging from the very accomplished to the up and coming. Everyone presents their work in the same format. The Art Slam is a place for artists and art enthusiasts to gather and share their work in a non-competitive atmosphere. The event is meant to be a fun, relaxed and inspiring evening, reminding us why we create art in the first place.

Several PAL artists will have work shown in the Art Slam, including Judy Buskirk, Judy Gilbert, Anne Moore Knapp, and Kari Tirrell. The Art Slam is free and open to the public. Join us for a reception in the Rialto lobby following the event.
