Tacoma Art Place Announces Video Contest Winner
Tacoma, WA – Non-profit arts organization Tacoma Art Place (TAP) has announced that Christopher Wood is the winner of their 2nd Annual Video contest. Sponsored by Comcast, the contest encourages amateurs and professional filmmakers to create a video “commercial” that promotes the mission of Tacoma Art Place.
Wood’s submission tells the story of a local woman inspired, by public art within the City of Tacoma, to find her own creativity. Wood wins a $250 cash prize, and exposure on the Comcast website, www.comcastinwashingtonstate.com and the TAP website, www.tacomaartplace.org.
Walter Neary, Public Relations Director for Comcast said, “The image of the woman reaching out to the art speaks powerfully to how we all need and reach for methods of self-expression. That need to create images of our inner selves and our thinking is part of what makes us people and is something that unites us as human beings. Tacoma Art Place is a wonderful place where people can find their art, and is a magnificent resource for the Hilltop and the rest of Tacoma.”
Tacoma Art Place is a non-profit art center (with 501c3 charitable status) in the heart of the revitalized MLK neighborhood. For more information visit www.tacomaartplace.org.
