The Tucson Museum of Art and Historic Block, southern Arizona’s oldest and largest art institution, has been an integral part of Tucson’s art and social landscape for nearly a century. Since opening its doors to the public in 1924, the Museum has grown from an Arts Association in the Kingan House to a distinguished cultural institution encompassing an entire city block in historic downtown Tucson with a permanent collection of more than 8,700 works of art spanning six centuries.

The Museum features original and traveling exhibitions focusing on Art of Latin America, Art of the American West, Modern and Contemporary Art and Asian Art and a history of dynamic educational programming, tours, studio art classes, community outreach and exciting locally-based exhibitions like the Arizona Biennial 2013. Museum educational programming has provided nearly 10,000 hours of arts education to area schools and families. Recently the Museum was honored by the Center for the Future of the Museum for “innovation excellence” and has been named the best art museum in southern Arizona for more than a decade in a row by the Tucson Weekly.

The Tucson Museum of Art serves the city and surrounding regions and is committed to broadening public access to the arts and creating equitable access for all Arizonans to the Museum’s resources, exhibitions and educational programming.

The Tucson Museum of Art’s mission is “connecting art to life.”
