More Cool Things To Do This Summer!by Jim Gressinger on Jun. 01, 2012, under Local Art, Local Concerts, Performing Arts
Several upcoming events caught my attention yesterday. Thought you might like to know about them. Several are things you can do with your children … or grandchildren as the case may be.
Starting today, our botanical gardens will feature an exhibit called Flights of Fancy, meaning fanciful birdhouses in one of the many gardens.
Then, every 3rd Thursday this summer (6/21, 7/19, & 8/16) TBG will offer live outdoor music performances from 5PM to 8PM. These will feature:
R&P Music Factory & Susannah Castro, Tesoro & Valerie Galloway, El Camino Royales & Patricia Katchur.
This Sunday is the final day of the Frida Kahlo exhibit and Ms. Karen & I are going. Also, this will be the last of the exhibit titled Tesoros del Pueblo: Latin American Folk Art.
This Sunday, June 3rd, is First Sunday, which means you can get in FREE. And for the kids, there will be an art class where they can create their own art.
On June 15th, the Museum will host a Members’ Reception from 6PM – 8PM in celebration of the two new exhibits: Tucson Collects: Spirit of the West and 100 Years 100 Ranchers: Photographs by Scott T. Baxter. These exhibits will open officially the next day, June 16th.
I’ve seen several of Scott Baxter’s very large and exquisite prints at Sky Harbor Airport. Highly recommended.
Wine and beer will be available at the cash bar in the lobby of the Museum. Put on your western garb and enjoy a night of music and entertainment inspired by these western exhibits. FREE to members, $10 non-member guests.
