This Weeks Tacoma City Arts Magazine Worth Picking Up

It's true.  Tacoma City Arts Magazine has had some weak editions.  That's to be expected as they are still a young publication.


But this month is different.  Really.


The current edition is worth reading.  So much so that you should:

The Cover


 





Here, Tacoma City Arts publishes one of their best articles on the Frost Park Chalk Off.  Mentioned: Andrea Trenbeath, RR Anderson and the Tacoma Urbanist

Sidenote: For the first time in print, Andrea is given the urban title of a "chalkie," a term so hip and cutting edge that the online Urban Dictionary has not even caught up to define the term.  The best I can tell, the term "chalkie" was first used in the Tacoma blogosphere on June 17, 2008 on the Urbanist.


Commentary:


Keep up the great work Tacoma City Arts!  Art is not dead in Tacoma.  It lives.

Bonus trivia:

Andrea's chalk piece on the glass blowers also made the first page of the Local section of the News Tribune:

Lance actually won the chalk off on this day with the largest zombie voting army assembled in Frost Park.
