This perennially popular session investigates current best practices and choices made in creating exhibitions this year with the Tacoma Art Museum (TAM). The critique will be of the temporary exhibition, Immigrant Artists & the American West, which will draw from TAM's Haub Family Collection of Western American Art, its Northwest Art Collection, and select loans. The exhibition is a celebration of diverse immigrant experiences and hopes to inspire connections and further dialogue about the profound impact immigration has on the lives of people in our community and the broader western region both historically and today.
