Creative. Inspiring. Captivating. Expect these words to come to mind as you stroll through the Tucson Museum of Art during the 95th anniversary season. Paintings, photography, chalk drawings, sculptures, and exhibitions tantalize audiences, evoking thought and emotion just as the talented artists intended.

30 Americans: The Rubell Family Collection kicks off TMA’s anniversary season by showcasing pieces created by influential African-American artists from the past three decades. Vibrant patterns, intriguing textures, and a wide variety of mediums come together to represent racial, sexual, and historical identity experiences. Pieces from this highly regarded collection come to Tucson October 2018 through January 2019.
