As Tucson’s temperatures soar in continuous triple digits, many of us seek out the AC. If you haven’t been to ASM in a while, perhaps now is when you’d like to enjoy some cool culture. Our AC is on full, and as students are gone for the summer, parking is easy. So come spend a cool afternoon in ASM’s galleries. Parking and other visit info is on our website.
Currently on display are exhibits showcasing Native basketry, American Indian pottery (we’ve added more cases of pots), Hopi quilts, Mexico’s history, and photographs of Southwest landscapes, along with our core Paths of Life exhibit about Native peoples of the Arizona and northern Mexico. Be sure to pop into the museum store for a choice of items to take home with a story.
Curious about all that we did this (fiscal) year? Check out the Director’s report.
For those far away, enjoy a cool afternoon at home or in a library browsing our website. You’ll find virtual exhibits, research reports, games, podcasts (including interviews with American Indian artists and recordings of some of our past programs), and more.
And stay tuned for a full array of programs and new exhibits in the fall. Hints of things to come: Coffee with the Curators talks, book signing by Caroline O’Bagy Davis and discussion, Hopi quilt programs, la frontera/border photographs, basketry lectures, Native Eyes film showcase, Woodbury estate sale/auction, and more!
Stay cool: appreciate culture!
