Tacoma Art Museum, Tacoma, WA - To Jun 14, 2020
Some cultural institutions are spotlighting the role immigrants have played in forming North American culture as a whole. TAM’s latest selection from its Haub Family collection of art of the American West displays examples ranging from an Indian chief by Irish-Canadian painter Paul Kane to carved wood baby pacifiers on a noose by Pakistani-born artist Humaira Abid. Other artists from Denmark, Kenya, France, Mexico, Russia, Germany, Australia, Sweden, China and Japan are welcome surprises.
