Tucson Arts

“A mini mecca for the arts” is how one Wall Street Journal reporter described Tucson, marveling at the depth of artistic expression found here. The city has long been a beacon for creatives looking to draw inspiration from the strange beauty of the Sonoran Desert, not to mention the blend of cultures that birthed an aesthetic unlike any other. From visual nomads like Ansel Adams to desert natives like Tucson’s own Ted DeGrazia, this area has captured the imaginations of artists for as long as anyone can remember.

Arizona Arts

There is plenty of arts experiences to be had in Tucson and on campus. The Arizona Arts division alone offers hundreds of performances, exhibitions and lectures each year. The Arizona Arts website provides you with a calendar of arts events and experiences as well as numerous stories, videos and more.

Students always get discounted tickets for all shows presented by Arizona Arts Live and admission is always free for students at the Center for Creative Photography and the University of Arizona Museum of Art.
