The Tacoma Art Museum features artwork by Lily Lee, associate professor, Department of Art, Design and Visual Studies, and Carrie Quinney, multimedia coordinator for the College of Education, in their exhibition titled “Soft Power. The exhibition includes artwork by twenty-one artists and runs through September 2024.

“Soft Power draws its name and inspiration from Joseph Nye’s theory of cultural heritage as a form of non-coercive power. Using traditional processes to create contemporary declarations of resistance, resilience, love and rebuke, this work explores the dynamic contrast between soft materials and so-called ‘hard’ ideas. This engaging and provocative exhibition explores cultural stereotypes, humanity’s impact on the environment and healthcare access.” – From the Tacoma Art Museum.
