STOP #4 on May's ART BUS Tour

Thursday May 15th 6 - 9 pm

Tomorrow night's ART BUS Tour includes a visit to Throwing Mud Gallery !
At Throwing Mud Gallery, you’ll find creativity expressed in all forms. The gallery presents about 100 different artists, mostly from the Pacific Northwest area. You’ll notice right away that they feature an extensive selection of pottery, but they also have unique handmade jewelry, glass, wood, metal and much more for sale. During our visit, we will get a sneak peak of their annual student pottery sale. Pottery created by the many talented people who take classes at Throwing Mud Gallery is on display and for sale at exceptional prices. This sale is open through Saturday. The ‘paint your own pottery’ studio at Throwing Mud Gallery offers a place to drop in anytime they’re open and add your own special color and design to a piece of pre-made pottery.

ART BUS is a tour led on the Third Thursday of each month in conjunction of Tacoma Art Walk. Ride the Walk with us. 

There will be games, prizes, a celebrity tour guide, swag and more not to mention delicious pizza provided by Puget Sound Pizza and terrific local art exhibits. 

We like the sound of "the Mayor in May" and we have had the Mayor as the celebrity tour guide in May before but she's out of town this time so we invited another local celebrity, the "Mayor" of Hilltop Rand Chiarovano, co-owner of Hilltop Loans! Come and find out how he got this nickname!
