    Join us for a reception in the Rialto lobby following the event, allowing community members an opportunity to mingle.

    What is an Art Slam? In a fast-paced format, a selection of work by local visual and performing artists will be projected on the big screen, set to a soundtrack of musical accompaniment. Live dance and spoken word performances will be interspersed between segments of the show. An accompanying description of artists’ work and contact information will be included in a program. Artists of all mediums and genres will show their work, ranging from the very accomplished to the up and coming. Everyone presents their work in the same format. The Art Slam is a place for artists and art enthusiasts to gather and share their work in a non-competitive atmosphere. The event is meant to be a fun, relaxed and inspiring evening, reminding us why we create art in the first place.

    In addition to the live November 18 show, the Art Slam will be available for free public viewing on Click! ON Demand’s TacomaArt & Culture channel through December 2010. ON Demand is accessible to anyone who is a Click! Cable TV customer with a digital receiver.
