The 2015 TAM Symposium of Western American Art, "Voices, Views & Visions: New Perspectives on the Arts of the West," provided an interdisciplinary forum to present a broad context for understanding the Haub Family Collection of Western American Art at Tacoma Art Museum.

This annual symposium aims to address the evolving definition of the American West and its legacy in American arts through questions such as: What is the West? Who is the West? Where is the West? Featuring diverse voices from regional and national speakers, the presentations will contribute to larger dialogues in art history, Native American and American culture studies, national and regional history, and contemporary issues.

Generous support provided by Peters Family Foundation.
