Tamarind Institute Free Tours

Tamarind Institute has an international reputation as a center for fine art lithography and for its contributions to printmaking. The snazzy Central Avenue building (it moved there in summer 2010) is a lovely chilled-out space and I feel super-coooool when I visit.  Mr Cheap still loves his Tamarind Institute 50th Anniversary T-Shirt with a design by Ed Ruscha, and people comment on it whenever he wears it.  (Appreciative comments. Which make a nice change from the remarks he gets on some of his outfits.)

To get an insider view of the world-renowned art center, you can take a free Tamarind Institute tour on the first Friday of most months, and the Tamarind Institute folk tell us that they should have one every month now through the end of 2012.  Reservations are required in advance, as spaces are limited.

The free Tamarind Institute Tours at 1:30 pm last about 90 minutes, and include a printing demonstration, history of the Tamarind, and a video.

The next Tamarind Institute First Friday tour dates at 1:30 pm will be:

July 6, 2012
August 3, 2012
September 7, 2012
October 5, 2012

    Tours are free, but spaces are limited, so contact Tamarind Institute by phone or email to reserve a place.

    Tamarind Institute is located at 2500 Central Avenue SE, at the corner of Central and Stanford
