Upcoming Events

Zhi LIN: In Search of the Lost History of Chinese Migrants and the Transcontinental Railroads

Art Show
Tacoma Art Museum is honored to present an exhibition from internationally acclaimed Seattle artist Zhi LIN. His works focus on the experiences of 19th century Chinese laborers, whose vital story is nearly absent from American history books. Lin’s paintings resonate in our region. Their content is amplified by the legacy of historical racism exacerbated by contentious labor relations during the construction of the railroads, and the ensuing Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882. Such laws encouraged acts of violence and vigilantism against the Chinese migrants already living here, including the forced expulsion of Chinese people from Tacoma in 1885. This exhibition features a large scale video installation and intimate watercolors of sites with historical significance, including the City of Tacoma.

The Art of American Framing

Art Show, Gallery, Installations, Museum, Painting
Have you ever noticed what a difference a frame can make in how you see an artwork? Since the Renaissance, framing has been an artform in itself. Carved, painted, and gilded frames can not only enhance a painting but also reflect the tastes of their time. This exhibition looks in depth at a selection of American frames from the 19th and early 20th centuries, illustrating key trends and changes which are reflected in the frames on the American still-life paintings in the galleries nearby.
