STOP #6 on May's ART BUS Tour

Thursday May 15th 6 - 9 pm

Stop #6 on tonight's ART BUS Tour is The Hub. The featured artist at The Hub tonight is Darrin Shaw. As a firefighter, Darrin finds that painting is the best form of stress release. In his own unique style he draws inspiration from his surroundings and tells a story in each piece. He loves to play with color in his many abstract designs of acrylic and oil on canvas.

For more information about this tour, visit

Tickets are $11 for Regular and $22 for VIP access which includes dinner (via Puget Sound Pizza), a bag full of exclusive deals and goodies from local businesses and raffle entry. To buy tickets , meet us at the curb on Pacific Ave front of Courtyard Marriott between 5:30 pm - 5:55 pm tonight. 

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!
