TACOMA — The city of Tacoma hopes to give the 30-year-old Tacoma Dome some pop by turning the arena’s 5-acre roof into an Andy Warhol painting.
Warhol submitted a giant, colorful flower design in a 1981 competition and lost, but it’s getting a second look.
City Arts Administrator Amy McBride says it would be “the world’s largest Warhol.”
KING 5 reports the city decided Tuesday to test the design for six months using a plastic adhesive commonly used in advertising wraps. After that the city would decide whether to approve a $2 million paint job, which would be funded by private donations.
