Throwback Thursday (#TBT): Looking back at our “Superhero” show, our community art installation at the Tacoma Art Museum last fall. Such a SUPER experience celebrating the artists of the Washington State brain injury community, greeting old friends and making new ones.
The Brain Energy Support Team (BEST) was thrilled and honored to share the art of the Washington State brain injury community.
BEST participated in a community art installation at the Tacoma Art Museum (TAM). Work displayed in Tacoma Art Museum’s TAM Local: Community Art Space for the “Superhero” show. The show ran from October 16, 2019 to December 26, 2019, with an opening night receptions and artist meet and greet on Thursday, October 17, 2019 in the TAM Community Art Space.
With 18 artists featured and nearly 50 pieces of art, this installation was enjoyed by many.
Now that the “Superhero” show has taken flight, we’d like to thank the following:
