PATRONS' EVENT - PREVIEW RECEPTION
Attend a reception for artists and art patrons featuring music, hors d’oeuvres and drinks catered by Hacienda del Sol, and a talk by acclaimed Tohono O’odham artist Terrol Dew Johnson. The $50-entry to this event provides a private first viewing of the art and presale opportunities.
Our goal is to enrich the cultural landscape by increasing awareness of sculpture, large and small, public and private, within our community. While a small percentage of the show sales go to the purchase of public art, the majority of sales go to the artists to support his or her work.
Tucson is no longer a quiet Sonoran town known just for its warm days and cool nights. With more than a million full-time residents, Tucson is a vibrant growing community built in large part on arts of every kind. Architecture, painting, photography, dance, music, poetry and of course sculpture play a major role in the identity of this growing city.
With Mexico one hour to the south and Phoenix one hour to the north, Tucson stands uniquely with one foot in its rich southwest history and the other in the future of a contemporary urban center.
Whether your interest is museums (Tucson has several that are world-class), astronomy (Tucson is a center for astronomy research), bike riding (Tucson has over 100 miles of bike trails), dining (Tucson is UNESCO’s 2017 City of Gastronomy) hiking and sightseeing above and below ground, Tucson has something amazing for you to experience.
