Tacoma Art Museum is a museum in Tacoma, Washington emphasizing art and artists from the Northwest and broader western region. Founded in the 1935, the museum has strong roots in the community and anchors Tacoma's downtown university and museum district.
The museum's collection of more than 4,500 works emphasizes the art and artists of the Northwest and broader western region. Highlights of the collection include: the largest retrospective museum collection of glass art by Tacoma native Dale Chihuly on continued view; the largest collection of studio art jewelry by Northwest artists; key holdings in 19th century European and 20th-century American art; one of the finest collections of Japanese woodblock prints on the West Coast; and the Haub Family Collection, one of the nation's premier western American art collections, with approximately 300 works spanning 200 years.
The Haub Family Collection is the first major museum collection of western American art in the Pacific Northwestern region. Named by USA Today as one of the "Top 10 Great Places to See Art in Smaller Cities", the museum has developed a national reputation for presenting art in a thought-provoking yet accessible manner, with a strong commitment to Northwest art through its acquisition and exhibition programs.
In addition to dynamic exhibitions, nationally touring shows, and historical retrospectives, TAM serves the diverse communities of the region through innovative programming and learning opportunities for all ages, including free community events.
