Definitely something to check out when visiting this historic settlement. The surrounding mountain ranges and natural beauty is inspiration to a number of artists residing in the area.

Don't take people who don't like to browse, to shop, to stroll. Our visit was a little rushed because many in the group were not interested at all in the Mexican arts and crafts, of which there were many. And we didn't get to Tubac until after 4, not a good plan as the shops mostly close at 5.

Currently there is a show of beautiful Navaho rugs. They look brand new but are all over 100 years old. Stunning is the word and with many well displayed in one room it is breath-taking. Worth a view or two!

Just barely on anyones radar as far as the art world is concerned. Not even close to what Marfa, Texas has to offer. Just saying if you have the choice go to Marfa.

We were there for a concert of the Marimbas and it was great! Beautiful experience, everything was very well organized. Besides the performance the organizers are so polite and friendly. Hope to come back soon. They offered us some wine and cheese after so we had time to see all the art shown at the center. Highly recommended.

A friend and I decided to drive down from Phoenix to attend an art opening at the Tubac Center of the Arts. We went to several cute little shops in the afternoon before heading to the opening. The art show was wonderful, with work from artists all over the country. There were lots of people there and we had a... More

The sculpture selected to be placed out front does nothing to enhance the terrible new design of the building. There are good artists in Tubac and why they are not shown at this art center has always been a mystery to me when I have visited.

Excellent experience shopping for the day at the various shops in Tubac! There is something for everyone, "nicknack-paddy-wack", paintings, sculptures, jewelry, etc. The shopkeepers were friendly, informative, and helpful. Many of the shops enlisted artifacts from South America, as well as Mexico. The restaurants and snack shops were varied and excellent. The volume of shops was also excellent, we couldn't... More

TCA and the infamous Mountain Oyster Club of Tucson are working together to provide an opportunity for the public to see selected Western art that has never been made available to the public before. On display from this private collection are many noted artists, some being members of CAA: Tim Cox, John Moyers, Robert Daughters, Howard Post, Robert "Shoofly" Shufelt,... More
