Four schools in Tacoma are now part of Tacoma Art Museum's MUSE program. These include Pacific Lutheran University, UW-Tacoma, University of Puget Sound, and Tacoma Community College.
Why does this matter to you? Well, it doesn't if you aren't a student, faculty member, or staff member at one of those schools.
But if you are a student, faculty member, or staff member of one of these schools, you have access to several benefits-free admissions, discounted admissions, discounts on membership, special group tours, and even internship opportunities made available directly through MUSE. Schools can each choose which level of membership they have; higher levels of membership mean more free admissions.
"The whole idea of the MUSE program is to ensure that students have access to original works of art that can help enhance their areas of study," says Thomas Duke, TAM Manager of Membership and Annual Giving. "The MUSE program is in its seventh year. We also are looking to welcome Evergreen State college back into the program shortly (most likely November, if not sooner)."
To gain free entry to Tacoma Art Museum, students must have a valid student ID card with them. To look into internship opportunities, apply through the TAM website under the Membership + Support tab.
