2018 Summer SOULstice
June 21, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Hosted by Tacoma’s Poet Laureate Kellie Richardson, Summer SOULstice is an intersection of creativity, community and commerce. June 21st marks summer solstice, the longest day and shortest night of the year. SOULstice will hold space to celebrate this annual miracle by featuring emerging and established artists from marginalized communities. The work will featured should carry themes of awakening and healing, personal connection to Earth and spirit. The weight of historical oppression, generational trauma has never diminished the indelible joy, creativity, innovation and pride of those on the margins. SOULstice underscores this victory.
Featured artists include Kellie, Richardson, Thy Nguyen, Olivia Thomas and Hybrid. In addition to feature performances, an exhibit space and artist market will feature work from local artists and entrepreneurs. Work will include every medium and price range. Tiffany Hammond, painter and muralist will also create a live painting during the performance.
Co-sponsored by Tacoma Art Museum, @Tacoma Arts Commission, and City of Tacoma’s Office of Equity and Inclusion, Summer SOULstice is FREE of charge to all who’d like to attend.
