Tucson Museum of ArtThe Tucson Museum of Art and Historic Block (TMA) is an art museum and art education institution located in the Presidio District of downtown Tucson, Arizona. The museum comprises 74,000-square-feet of exhibition space over a four-acre city block that includes a contemporary main museum and 19th C. historic homes that have been adapted for reuse as the Museum restaurant, pottery school, and galleries.
The Museum concurrently presents eight to nine exhibitions including international and traveling exhibitions, TMA-curated exhibitions, and ongoing exhibitions of permanent collections. TMA's collection of more than 8,000 objects is focused on modern and contemporary art, Latin American, Western and Native American, and Asian art.
The Museum has served as a community art education venue since its inception in 1924. Art education has continued as a major function of the Museum through museum staff and a docent organization that carries out education and outreach programs.
The Museum's campus of landscaped plazas host community and private events including artisans markets, festivals, live performances, an annual ''Día de los Muertos'' event, weddings, high school proms, award ceremonies, and other community events. The Museum hosts Creative Space, an interactive space for children and families. The Museum campus includes Cafe a la C'Art, a full service restaurant and bakery that was ranked one of the top museum restaurants in the United States by ''Food & Wine Magazine.'' and the Museum Store, featuring original art and craft work by local and regional artists and artisans.
In 2015, the Tucson Museum of Art was named one of the Top Western Art Museums in the United States by ''True West'' magazine. Provided by Wikipedia
