  • Superb exhibit of Southwestern Art. A little off the beaten path but well worth the time. Bravo Tucson!!
  • This museum is off the beaten path, and is different from many you will visit. It is about two years young and thus still adding to its displays, which include a large representation of Navajo and other Native American weaving dating from the mid to late 1800's. As a researcher and reporter for SeniorCitizenLocalWeb I visited the museum in June of 2015, and found that the personal there were friendly, and knowledgeable. The museum in addition to the Native America aspect also has a section on advertising during the World War Two period, some Andy Warhol items, and a few ad pieces that would 'shock' many today, but were accepted in the past. There is a small display of women's history that includes clothing, make-up items, and a wall with pictures and write-ups of 'first women', no not the president's wives, but women who made history as being the first to do this or that.. very unique and interesting.. Off to one corner of the museum is a sales floor where you can purchase artworks and other items. The only objection was that no photography is allowed, which this author feels is a mistake; when people take pictures, they show the pictures to others, and thus promote the others to come and see for themselves first hand the beauty of the displays. By refusing to allow photos, the excuse is copyright protection, it limits the audience that may have seen the displays or have interest in visiting. Location, Tucson, Arizona, Tucson Desert Art Museum, Gaslight Square Shopping Center, Tucson, AZ 85715 GPS 32.249931, -110.842018... There is a very large parking lot, and in the rear of the complex are some covered parking spaces. On Sundays there may be 'flee-market' tents set up, and if you are hungry after the museum visit, there is a decent and reasonably priced Mexican Restaurant in the complex..
  • Great exhibits. Both permanent and temporary
