Just in time for this much deserved Best of Tucson win, the Tucson Museum of Art unveiled its new Kasser Family Wing of Latin American Art. Over the summer, pre-Columbian and up-to-the-minute contemporary art went on view in a new space that spans over 3,000 years of the art history of the Americas. The wing’s thousands of square feet of new art space hold pieces stretching back centuries, including gorgeous clay figures and textiles created by artists in Peru, Guatemala, Mexico and elsewhere. Expansions like this show why TMA rises to the top of local museums – it’s more than a museum, it’s a whole block! The museum is steward to several historic houses and holds an extensive collection of local art; its wide-open galleries allow you to wander through a wide variety of ever-changing exhibitions.
