By Alec Clayton on October 29, 2014

Time is nigh for the opening of the new wing at Tacoma Art Museum. The Haub Family Collection catalog, Art of the American West: The Haub Family Collection at Tacoma Art Museum, is now available for purchase in the TAM Store ($45, soft cover). The catalog includes color images for all 295 works in the Haub collection. Get it now for a marvelous preview of the collection and treasure it forever.

Also available is the museum's newest mascot, Cody, a cute plush bison toy ($24.50). Cody was named after the first bison brought to the Haub family's ranch. Also available is a Pendleton Saxony Hills blanket robe ($250). The Saxony Hills blanket references the changing landscape of Navajo weaving in the 1800s when yarns from merino sheep produced in the Saxony area of Germany were introduced. The blanket incorporates traditional, geometric Navajo motifs.

The museum has posted the schedules for grand opening events on the website. Check under the Calendar and Events tab for details about the Go West Gala and Go West Grand Opening. Tickets are still available for the evening social and members' party featuring live music by The Tallboys and TAM's new signature Tacoma New West CDA from Harmon Brewing Co. and Tacoma New West Bourbon Whiskey from Heritage Distilling Co.
