The sun is shining and we are loving the new improvements along E. 64th (Pacific to McKinley), which include the City's first-ever protected bike lane, new crosswalks, landscaping and, of course, PUBLIC ART! "East Tacoma Textiles" by Elisheba Johnson and Kristen Ramirez is a scavenger-hunt-like artwork for the neighborhood with original poetry sandblasted on salvaged granite curbs from downtown Tacoma; colorful ceramic tiles that reference world textiles and the natural world; and custom-colored and stamped concrete. And, the improvements will continue in future phases all the way down E. 64th to the the eastern border of the City. Come see for yourself, and stay tuned for more!
