Art of the Pacific Northwest and Greater Western Region

About our Collections

Since its founding in 1935, Tacoma Art Museum has focused on the art and artists of the Northwest in both its exhibitions and collecting. In 2012, the gift of the Haub Family Collection of Western American Art enabled the museum to broaden focus to the art of the entire western region. A key goal in the museum’s strategic plan is to build the premier collection of Northwest art and western American art and be a leader in the preservation and scholarship of the region’s visual arts. The museum’s rich collection now includes over 5,000 artworks, about 3,800 of which are by Northwest artists or related to the region. They range across all media and span from the late 18th century to the present.

e-Museum Database

Made possible by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, Tacoma Art Museum’s eMuseum project was designed to make the museum’s collection available online.
