The Arts

Local artists draw inspiration from Tucson's unique and vibrant culture.

Tucson's Cultural Oasis

A mini mecca for the arts. That's how one Wall Street Journal reporter described Tucson, marveling at the relatively high ratio of primo performing and visual arts groups for a city of medium size.

Tucson's vibrant artistic mix includes exceptional museums, inspiring galleries, mesmerizing public murals, a rich filmmaking history, and a trendsetting music scene. The creativity trickles down at classes and workshops where you can make your own masterpieces, indoors and out.

Whether you're roaming clubs downtown or reserving seats at a concert hall on the university campus or at a resort hotel in the foothills, there's a vast lineup of performances, films, comedy shows, and art exhibits to choose from in Tucson. Shoppers will find plenty of treasures handmade by Tucson artists and artisans at local galleries, museums, shops, and fairs.
