Olive Road Arts Block Party

Arizona Arts and its neighbors hosted the first-ever Olive Road Arts Block Party on Oct. 1 with over 500 guests enjoying several food trucks, a DJ, and performances from UA Dance, Eller College of Management’s Ellervator Pitch, a CAPLA VR experience, the Speak-Easy Xylophone Ragtime Band from the Fred Fox School of Music, and a performance from the School of Theatre, Film & Television students of stage combat, plus, tabling with student organizations and free gallery access.

The Block Party brought together the academic departments, exhibitions and performances sectors of Arizona Arts, as well as our neighboring colleges: the College of Architecture, Planning, and Landscape Architecture and Eller College of Management. The Block Party coordinated efforts with members of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona and Graduate and Professional Student Council.

“We invested in the planning and production of the event, so as to work with and not for our first community, University students,” said organizers Chelsea Farrar of the University of Arizona Art Museum and Meg Jackson Fox of the Center for Creative Photography. “We wanted students who are either new to campus or are less familiar with Arizona Arts have an opportunity to become acquainted with — and find themselves excited about — the vibrancy that is our campus community for the arts.”

The renovated Marroney Theatre reopens this week with the debut of Sweeney Todd by UA School of Theatre, Film & Television, celebrating the newly christened stage named in honor of one of our most beloved alumni, actor Craig T. Nelson.

The theatre has new seating, state-of-the-art screening equipment, and a sound system. These updates will allow the venue to double as one of the most technologically advanced film screening rooms in Tucson. Plus, there are upgrades to the east entry, lobby, box office, and restrooms.

“The reopening of the Marroney Theatre marks an important milestone for the Arizona Arts Master Plan,” said Andrew Schulz, vice president for the arts. “We have upgraded a space used by generations of theatre students and soon by our film students as well.

All of this was made possible thanks to the generosity of private donors as well as university leadership who provided critical matching funds.
