Honor fathers, help artist create sculpture

Honor Dad or other family members by contributing a special blanket to the Tacoma Art Museum for use in an outdoor sculpture.

Artist Marie Watt is creating the sculpture using 400 blankets, which will be cast and bronzed.

The sculpture will be installed in front of the museum’s new Haub Family Galleries, along Pacific Avenue in Tacoma.

“Blankets are storied objects,” said Watt, whose artwork explores the humble but significant role that blankets play in our culture, and especially in American Indian cultures.

Anyone can contribute a blanket to the sculpture and share the blanket’s background.

People can bring their blankets to the museum’s admissions desk between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. on June 14 at 1701 Pacific Ave., Tacoma.

Those who want to document the blanket’s story can fill out a tag at the front desk.
