About The Collective
The 253 Collective consists of a group of artists from the greater Puget Sound/Pierce County area. The group displays artwork at a retail space in the Jet/Tioga Building at the UW Tacoma campus, right across the street from The Swiss restaurant. Each artist contributes to the monthly rent in the amount of $20.00. There is a one-time joining fee of $40.00, a bi-annual supply fee of $15.00 and a refundable cash-on-hand deposit fee of $10.00.   Each artist, as part of their membership responsibilities, staffs the gallery one day per month. The collective is currently open every Saturday, and during Tacoma’s 3rd Thursday Art Mingle**. Artists are asked to participate in regular monthly meetings and occasional events.
