With roots on campus since the 1930s, the University of Arizona Museum of Art (UAMA) is a crucial and highly visible asset and educational center on campus. We need your help to keep it that way. With the start of our new director, W. James Burns, we will be holding a series of Town Hall Meetings to hear from faculty, staff, students, and the Tucson community on their thoughts about the role and direction of the Museum of Art. We welcome all opinions, whether you are a museum regular or have never visited.
Town Hall Meetings will last 1.5 hours. Participate in a lively discussion on the future of your museum. The museum is located at 1031 N. Olive Road, next to the School of Art and at the corner of Park and Speedway. Parking is available at the Park Street Garage.
We welcome your opinion — if you are unable to attend on the date scheduled for the group you identify with, you are welcome to attend any town hall meeting that fits your schedule
