Friday, the Sellen Construction crew removed the banners concealing the Haub Family Galleries wing at the Tacoma Art Museum. The expansion is fully visible, gracing Pacific Avenue. The tall canopy that arches over the museum’s new entry doors connecting the Antoine Predock building and the new Olson Kundig Architects designed wing will be completed by Oct. 3. The new canopy provides a covered outdoor gathering space for community festivals and events.

Sellen will soon hand over the keys to the new wing. There are a few small items to complete, and the museum’s director, Stephanie A. Stebich, is working in collaboration with the architects Olson Kundig and Sellen to compile the final punch-list.

The new TAM store will soon re-stock in preparation for the Nov. 15 grand opening celebrations. Look forward to wonderful new merchandise including the new TAM logo items, Western influenced jewelry, products featuring images of the artwork in the Haub Family Collection, and new Northwestern items as well. TAM’s Leroy has a new friend — an adorable stuffed bison named Cody after the first bison brought to the Haub’s ranch.

TACOMA ART MUSEUM, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday-Sunday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. third Thursday, 1701 Pacific Ave., Tacoma, $8-$10, 5 and younger free, 253.627.6031
