Controversial Artist RR Anderson Acquires Coveted Retail Space at UWT for "Tinkertopia"

After years of lampooning every politician and others in Tacoma and around the state, RR Anderson is about as anti-establishment as they get in the City of Destiny.

Yet, last week, the powers that be joined forces and gave him a plumb: the crown jewel of a retail space in Downtown Tacoma by the University of Washington at 1914 Pacific Avenue through the City of Tacoma's Spaceworks Program for the business he and his wife started : Tinkertopia.

This is the former Gyro place right next to Savor Creperie


The days of being relegated to the confines of his tiny workshop in his backyard are over.  Because he recently gave up his day job, there is no going back.

God Speed Tinkertopia, RR, and Ms. Darcy!

More about RR revealed at his book signing at Kings Books via "Electric Elliot."
