- Date: 12/06/2019 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
- Location: Schmidt House
330 Schmidt Place
Tumwater, Washington 98501
Celebrate the art of beer! This free show features over 50 original advertising artworks created for the Olympia Brewing Company during the 1930s through 1950s. These paintings were translated into billboards, and were then meant to be thrown away. Luckily they survived, and offer a rare glimpse into advertising art and social norms of the day.
Visit Tumwater’s craft breweries before or after the art show for a chance to win great prizes!
