Collections Selections: Jacob Lawrence

October 13, 2018 @ 10:00 am - January 20, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

1911 Pacific Ave
Tacoma, 98402

Jacob Lawrence, one of America’s most celebrated artists, moved to Seattle from New York in 1970. Shortly thereafter, in 1972, Lawrence was commissioned by the State Capital Museum to create a set of narrative paintings about the saga of pioneer George Bush, the first African American pioneer to settle in the Evergreen State. For preservation purposes, these paintings are rarely on view; join us in appreciating them in the gallery this fall.

Tacoma, 98402

On April 23, 1936, Reverend Sunya Pratt was ordained as a minister at the Tacoma Buddhist Temple. Local and national newspapers described the ceremony, calling Rev. Pratt the “First White Buddhist Priestess,” a label that later scholars have called into question. Yet at a time when few Westerners converted to Buddhism, let alone became teachers, Rev.
