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.
