253 LogoThe 253 Collective is a gallery space for artists based in the Tacoma area. We opened in March of 2009 by way of our founder and Tacoma visionary, Linda Danforth. The goal of the cooperative is to provide a retail location for our artists while keeping the cost to a low monthly membership fee.  Each artist has an assigned job (marketing, art rotation, etc.) and works in the gallery about once per month.  There is no commission collected, so artists receive the full payment when their work is sold!  We enjoy serving our local art community.

Thank you for stopping by!
