Historic Tacoma introduced a coloring book that includes some of the group’s favorite historic buildings. Take your crayons or colored pencils (or markers, if you’re feeling bold), and fill in buildings like Union Station.
The book is called Color Me Saved! Historic Buildings of Tacoma, and it shows the importance of classic Tacoma buildings. The coloring book was created by Jori Adkins, a Historic Tacoma board member and part of the local Urban Sketchers Group.
The coloring book is not yet for sale. It will have a kick off event from 7-9 p.m. on May 5 at the Feast Arts Center in Hilltop. The event is free, and the public is invited to purchase a book. Books are also already on sale around town, among other places at Stocklist Goods on Pacific Avenue.
At the party, guests will also have the opportunity to be an architect for an evening. Randy Cook, of TCF Architecture, and a team of architects will lead a hands-on building design activity. Guests will work in teams to create ideas for adaptive reuse.
