Looking for a way to get outside on a cold, gray day in the Pacific Northwest? And find fun art pieces? AND celebrate Lunar New Year?
How about treasure hunting for #monkeyshines! Volunteer glass artists create small glass tokens or pendants and then hide them all over Tacoma for people to find, just around the Lunar New Year.

We are local artists and lovers of all things Tacoma. Our identities are secret-that is part of the magic of Monkeyshines.
Rogue monkeys have been busy and there are more wonderful gifts to be found this year than ever. I will be featuring monkeys in another blog post tonight or tomorrow.
And don’t forget all of the amazing things that our monkey friends and rogue monkeys are creating. It gets better and better every year. The best part of this Tacoma tradition is how everyone is out exploring our city, making new friends, picking up trash and thinking about what they can create and share with others. How will you give back?
Check out the #monkeyshines2019 hashtag on Twitter for real time updates on what monkeys, monkey friends and rogue monkeys are creating and hiding; You can also find that hashtag in use on Instagram and Facebook.

Be Safe, Have fun, and remember…. “TAKE ONLY ONE”
The artists have chosen to remain anonymous, but the collective of artists have agreed to continue doing this for another 12-year cycle!
You can listen to a podcast with two of the monkey artists (their voices were even anonymized to keep them a secret!).
