More Cool Things To Do In Tucsonby Jim Gressinger on Jun. 20, 2012, under Exceptional Museums, Exceptional Photographs, Local Attractions, Performing Arts, Southern Arizona Art, Things To Do In Tucson, Things To Do With The Kidz
Beginning July 1st, the Tucson Museum of Art will offer FREE admission to students 18 years of age and under. Also included in their new FREE admission policy are active military, vets, and of course museum members.
This pricing is particularly timely as the Museum is now exhibiting the large B&W photographs of Scott T. Baxter entitled 100 Years 100 Ranchers. I’ve seen several of these fine prints last year at Sky Harbor and they are exquisite. This exhibit will continue until September 23rd.
If you are not a member, college students pay $5; seniors $8; and all other adults $10. Memberships start at $40.
“We wanted to help make art as accessible as possible for everyone in Tucson; especially the younger population,” says Robert Knight, CEO of the Museum. “With an increasing number of fiscal cut backs, high school students are not offered many art electives in school. So, TMA would like to grant them free admission to our museum. Inspiring young people to not only appreciate but also learn from the art in our exhibitions, this new admission policy will go into effect July 1, 2012.”

Thursday 10:00 am – 8:00 pm

Tomorrow evening, Thursday June 21st, I will be attending the first of three garden concerts at Tucson Botanical Gardens. It will be a pleasant way to spend a summer evening.
