Finding Home: LGBTQ+ Communities in Tacoma

CURATOR: Elizabeth Korsmo

Finding Home is a celebration of Tacoma’s LGBTQ + History and the way its vibrant community has repeatedly come together to effect change.

Timber Town

CURATOR: Elizabeth Korsmo

This exhibit explores wood as an industry and touchpoint in Tacoma history. The primary focus is on the changes that mechanization brought into forestry c.1920, and the different related industries (paper, furniture, musical instruments, even toys) that developed in Tacoma around the lumbermills, again focusing on the second quarter of the 20th century. The final section addresses the legacy of the lumber industry in Tacoma.
