Tacoma, Wash. -- While the pros play some serious golf at the U.S. Open in the Tacoma area, amateurs can get creative at the Tacoma Art Museum. Outside the museum there is a temporary mini-golf course designed by local artists.
"The world is watching Tacoma for the U.S. Open and we also want them to know Tacoma is an arts city," said Stephanie Stebich, TAM director. "So, the Tacoma Art Museum with the city of Tacoma decided to commission nine artists in the area to create playful, creative, challenging putt-putt holes."
Each hole on the museum's Pop-Up Art Putt! was designed with a theme. Artist Christopher Hoppin created hole number 8. His creation was inspired by foosball and Sasquatch. It's appropriately called, Sasquatch Foosball.
"And, the best news, on Sunday Christopher will give it away to somebody, anyone, who wants. it," said Stebich.
Players can meet many of the artists and they can vote for their favorite mini-golf hole. Pop-Up Art Putt! is temporary and closes on Sunday, June 21 at 4:00 p.m.
Here are the days and hours you can play: Saturday, June 20, 10 am – 8 pm and Sunday, June 21, 10 am – 4 pm
