    There is more to art than just canvases and paint dollops on pallets. Travel just a bit north of downtown Tucson, and you will find a true art oasis in the form of the Tucson Museum of Art and Historic Block.

    Thanks to numerous events—including lectures from visiting artists and scholars, creative workshops and various family programs—and a diverse research library, the museum has something for every artist and art fan.

    The museum also hosts some of Tucson’s most mind-tickling art exhibits. In the past, the museum has shown exhibits like La Estrella de Nacimiento, which provided a glimpse of traditional work from Mexico and Peru.

    Surrounding the museum is the Historic Block, which includes five houses built between the 1850s and 1907. Guests can walk through the houses and view items from the museum’s art collection.

    The Tucson Museum of Art and Historic Block combines culture, history, art and creativity to produce one of Tucson’s true cultural gems.

    Also at 6260 E. Speedway Blvd. (747-7477) and 421 W. Ina Road (461-1111). Voted best bread in Tucson ever since it opened, Beyond Bread specializes in reviving the art of artisan bread, with its small batches and hand-formed loaves. Monstrous sandwiches, excellent pastries and swift service have earned this venue its status as one of the best places in Tucson to grab a quick bite to eat. (2-5-01)
    What a pleasant surprise Vitello’s is. It’s cozy; the staff is friendly; and the menu has just about everything Italian you might crave. The sauces range from a house marinara to a creamy vodka to a rich gorgonzola to a briny white clam. The pizzas are also quite good; they’re simple and rustic. Panini, salads, veal, chicken, seafood and dishes are also available. The cannoli is like Nana used to make. (1-13-11)
    Vivace NE 6440 N. Campbell Ave. 795-7221. AE, D, MC V. Full bar. Full Service. Taking decades of experience, family tradition and commitment to fine service, Vivace continues to be a great dining experience. Many of the pastas are made in house and work well with the assortment of delicious sauces offered. Meat course also please; the osso buco is a classic here. There will always be a fish offering and plenty of wines to pair with whatever you choose. Starters include savory stuffed mushrooms and a huge antipasto plate. Vivace is also known for sinful desserts. (11-20-14)
