As a Kickstarter contributor we were able to create a deck of Tacoma Playing Cards that features 14 local artists illustrating Tacoma’s icons, history and places.
And because of the popularity of the cards (and your continued support) we were able to create a second (red) deck of Tacoma Playing Cards that will be delivered in late/September – early/October.
The decks are available for pre-sale through next week ($15) and will be mailed as soon as we receive them from the printer and will then be available throughout town at our retail partners. We wanted to take a moment and invite you to a few events celebrating the project, the artists and the arrival of the second deck of Tacoma Playing Cards.
Currently on view at the MetroParks STAR Center (3873 S 66th Street) is a selection of original artwork that is featured in the inaugural blue deck of cards. You can stop by anytime to see these wonderful works in person, and are also invited to attend an artist’s reception on Thursday, September 26, 6:30 – 8 pm. (Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/500775993336961/)
Then on Friday, October 4, 6-9 pm at the Old Post Office, 1102 A Street first floor we will have on display all the original artwork featured in the Red Deck of Cards for one-night only. Participating artists will be in attendance, along with beer/wine, playing cards, posters and all-round fun (Facebook Event Page: https://www.facebook.com/events/286003528208762/)
We hope to see you at one or both of these events and thanks again for your support! We couldn't have done this without you!!!
