Tacoma Arts and Culture passport prize program extended through the end of 2014

No, Tacoma Arts Month did not truly end at the end of October.

The Arts and Culture Coalition of Pierce County has decided to extend its “Passport to Culture” program until the end of the year.

Pocket-sized passports are available at participating organizations and at the Tacoma Visitor Information Center in the lobby of the Greater Tacoma Convention & Trade Center downtown at 1500 Broadway.

Participants can expect prizes as they collect “passport stamps” from any or all of the sponsoring organizations. The more stamps, the better the prize.

Participating organizations include Broadway Center, Foss Waterway Seaport, The Grand Cinema, Hilltop Artists, Job Carr Cabin Museum, Tacoma Historical Society and 21 other attractions.

The aim of the program, according to a coalition release this week, “is to not only appeal to those already enthusiastic about arts and culture, but also to introduce new audiences.”
