TAM: Biennial answers

Some answers to questions from today’s training:


  • Unfortunately, Seattle Art Museum does not offer free admission or any other benefits to Tacoma Art Museum volunteers, docents or members. However, when visiting any museum, I would encourage you to always mention that you are a Tacoma Art Museum docent at the admission desk, and ask if they offer any special offers or discounts – I know that I have often received a discount in this same way (when I was a volunteer).


  • Jim Riswold does paint his Nazi figurines but they are not altered. What I mean by this is that he buys army figurine models that are intended to be Nazi armies (a quick web search will reveal many sites that sell such things), and they often come unpainted. So he does paint them himself, but in the way that they were intended to be painted – he does not paint a regular army model soldier to be a Nazi soldier.


  • Tacoma Art Museum does not have any of Anya Kivarkis’ jewelry pieces in the permanent collection.
