The public is invited to celebrate Tacoma’s industrial and architectural legacy at the Nitty Gritty Tacoma Salvage & Industrial Art Show on Saturday, Oct. 18, from 1 - 5 p.m., at Earthwise (626 E. 60th St. in Tacoma).

The City of Tacoma’s Historic Preservation Office is collaborating with Earthwise Architectural Salvage to feature 15 local artists who work with industry and architecture-related themes.

“This unconventional historic preservation and arts event emphasizes the importance of reuse,” said Historic Preservation Coordinator Lauren Hoogkamer from the City of Tacoma’s Planning and Development Services Department. “Many historic architectural materials are either no longer available or too expensive to recreate; architectural salvage is a great way to ensure that these materials aren’t wasted.”
 
As part of the Tacoma Murals Project, the art show will feature a dedication of the Earthwise mural by Puyallup Tribe graffiti artist Daniel Duenas and mural artist Chris Sharp.
 
This free event also includes live music, free beverages and food for purchase.
 
Visit the City’s Looking Ahead calendar for more information.
