Local art doesn’t get much more authentic than this. The Tashiro Kaplan All-Arts Building hosts art studios, exhibitions, and galleries—and it’s a home for the artists themselves. When market forces started driving artists out of Pioneer Square in the 1990s, the City of Seattle invited Artspace Projects to transform the Tashiro and Kaplan buildings into affordable housing and creative space for artists. Now manager Paul D. McKee makes sure that the Tashiro Kaplan All-Arts Building continues to provide studios and galleries where the public can enjoy their work. Swing by for a First Thursday Artwalk to see what the Tashiro Kaplan artists have been creating, and you’ll see Seattle’s arts community at its finest.
