Welcome to Tacoma Art Museum’s online collection database!


This project, designed to make the museum’s 4,700 object collection available online, was launched on November 1, 2011 and is a work in progress. New objects, information, and updated photographs are being added to the database regularly.

Online access has been made possible by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services Museums for America program and the generous support of the Driscoll Foundation and Herb and Lucy Pruzan.

Currently, images on this site are of variable quality; many were taken for documentation only. They are being replaced with professional photography as it becomes available.

Copyright for the artwork and the photography of the artwork lies with the artist, their assigns, or the museum. Images are available to view here for educational purposes only and are not for commercial use. If you would like to use a museum image for publication please contact us at with the subject line “R&R Use Request”

Artist information is compiled by TAM curators and from a variety of outside sources which are cited at the end of each biography.
