Enjoy a free, guided Public Art Walk in downtown Tacoma on Wednesday, June 3 from Noon- 1 p.m. The 1.5 mile walk, sponsored by Spaceworks Tacoma, will be led by Public Art Specialist Rebecca Solverson with the City of Tacoma. This walk will explore local public art and murals found throughout Tacoma’s Hilltop neighborhood. It will start at People’s Park on S. 9th & MLK Jr. Way. There is no need to pre-register for the event, simply join Downtown On the Go at the start.
Walk Tacoma 2015, sponsored by CHI Franciscan Health, is a nine-event walking series held on first and third Wednesdays, from April through August. The fun, themed walks, now in their sixth year, encourage people to enjoy downtown on foot by introducing new walking routes, and sharing information about the community and its history through the guided tours. The walks are scheduled at the lunch hour and just after work to encourage downtown employees to walk during their workday, whether it is to and from work or at a lunch break.
Spaceworks Tacoma manager Heather Joy says “Spaceworks Tacoma is proud to sponsor, for a third year in a row, the Walk Tacoma Public Art Walk. This year will be especially exciting as the walk will be in the Hilltop neighborhood, where Spaceworks has placed many exciting and innovative projects. And how fitting, the former Spaceworks Coordinator is leading the walk!”
