As a member of the Tucson Botanical Gardens, you can get into Tohono Chul and Tucson Museum of Art from May through September 30 for free! If you are not already a member – sign up now!
At Tohono Chul this summer you can “Hit the Road!” (May 2 – August 3) with an exhibit that features artwork inspired by our love affair with the open road. And on May 10 from 10-12:00 pm we’re “Celebrating Classic Cars” with members of the Antique Automobile Club of America and Tucson Vintage Motorcycles. Check out the smooth rides your parents or grandparents drove along Route 66, some smokin” antique motorcycles and a restored ’57 El Rey travel trailer complete with its ’59 caddy tow car! To make the day complete, we’ve even got food trucks – Mobile Bistro is serving 50s diner food and Pin-Up Pastries has whoopie pies and black cows (root beer floats for those in the know). When it’s really hot, it’s time for the Monsoon Madness Plant Sale, July 25 and 26; and of course, there’s Bloom Night. To find out when, sign up for email notifications at www.bloomwatch.org.
Escape the summer heat at the Tucson Museum of Art and enjoy reciprocal membership benefits! Check out their new exhibitions: Miradas: Ancient Roots in Modern and Contemporary Mexican Art, from the Bank of America Foundation, Rose Cabat at 100: A Retrospective of Ceramics, and Trails to Rails: John Mix Stanley and the Pacific Railroad Survey of the 1850’s. Thursday nights this summer look for exciting new programs from START, a group of emerging artists, professionals, and enthusiasts creating happenings at the Museum. Don’t forget to bring the kids to Picture This! Art for Families, a free family program held on the first Sunday of every month that is designated to introduce children to the varied world of art through gallery activities, special performances, and hands-on art making projects.
