Museums of Fine Art
Located in: Central Tucson District
The permanent collection of The University of Arizona Museum of Art includes Spanish and Renaissance art, as well as 19th-century American, contemporary, and modernist works. It's on the U of A campus just south of Speedway Blvd. and east of Park Ave. near the pedestrian underpass. Phone 520-621-7567. Since the completion of a $2.7-million renovation, the Tucson Museum of Art and Historic Block (downtown at the corner of N. Main Ave. and Alameda St.) has been able to display more of its fine collection and attract larger traveling exhibits, including one titled Tom Philabaum: Precarious Rocks, on display until mid-June. The museum renovated the historic Hiram Stevens House into the Palice Pavilion for its permanent collection of pre-Columbian, Spanish Colonial, and Latin American folk art. And while you're in the area, be sure to visit the John K. Goodman Pavilion of Western Art. Phone 520-624-2333. And don't miss Café à la C'Art (520-628-8533) for a little something to snack on.
