If there’s anyone whose career demonstrates the value of the liberal arts, it’s Tony Gómez ’93.

Today, he’s associate director of education at Tacoma Arts Live, but his career also has included being a K-12 teacher, arts administrator, percussionist, and PBS education producer. 

“One of the most powerful things about a liberal arts education is that you can look at big pictures,” he says, “and one of the challenges is that the world may not be organized according to what you’re able to see. So you have to be able to function within the silos the world has, and then start to build some bridges between those silos.”
