The Arts

Performing and visual artists draw inspiration from their Sonoran Desert-borderland surroundings in Tucson.

 

Southern Arizona's Cultural Oasis

Not too long ago, The Wall Street Journal labeled Tucson a "mini mecca for the arts" — marveling at the relatively high ratio of primo performing and visual arts groups, both long-standing and emerging, for a city of its size. Tucson's vibrant artistic mix includes exceptional museums, inspiring galleries, mesmerizing street murals, and a rich filmmaking history. Those looking for hands-on creativity can make their own masterpiece at classes and workshops available here. Whether you're taking in a show with one of Tucson's hottest bands at the Rialto or Club Congress or choosing from the vast line-up of staged concerts and plays or outdoor festivals, you'll certainly find something culturally oriented  to your liking.
