Tucson Museum of Art Reviews
Current Exhibitions! Aug 08, 2012
One of the few museums in Tucson that are worth seeing. Located on main street, the museum features some great art works and historical timelines in permanent and temporary exhibitions. Currently there are a few exhibitions that might interest you if you are coming to Tucson. The following are current exhibitions;
100 years, 100 Ranchers; photographic exhibition by Scott Baxter running through September 23, 2012. This exhibitions features incredible photographs by a Phoenix based artist Baxter who put together 100 black and white photographs of families who have been ranching since 1912. His project is part of celebrating the Arizona Centennial. Did you know this year Arizona celebrates 100 years of statehood?
Doodle for Google a contest in which students were invited to use their imaginations and artistic abilities to design logos for Google. This is from grades Kindergarten to 12th grades. Quite an interesting one. Exhibition ends August 31, 2012
The Latin American Art exhibition is an intriguing one; running through February 2013, it gives you a chance to plan your visit during cooler months in Arizona. I particularly liked this exhibition because I'm interested in everything Southern America, it is the only continent I have never visited and I'm building a travel plan to travel the continent next year. Well the exhibition includes pre-Colombian art, more than 1900 art pieces of Spanish Colonial and Folk Culture..
The James Conley collection of Chinese Renaissance was of interest but I run out of time seeing as my 6 month old is not exactly patient at his age. we plan to return sometime before the exhibit ends, it is one of the more longer running exhibitions ending in January 2014.
The permanent Sculptures outside the museum might interest you too.
