The Arizona State Museum sits in the middle of the U of A Campus. They have a very good permanent collection as well as fantistic shows. This is where the Mexican Mask Show was displayed awhile back.

We moved our daughter into Pueblo de la Cienga this past weekend. It was amazing to see the flock of volunteers that rushed our vehicle, unloaded hers and ours, and had her stuff in her room within 15 minutes!

Well worth a visit to the art and culture museums clustered around the campus. Lowry, Pollock and Rothko to name a few. No backwater this.

Great and exciting to see where the first experiment of how people would possibly live on another planet was executed. The drive we took during August monsoons was not to disappoint, rain, rain, and more rain. Great day.

Spent several hours in two rooms! Stellar! Professor Higgins provided an infectious enthusiastic discussion of Native American pots. From primitive to modern, these pots provide a wealth of insight to our indigenous ancestors as well as a glimpse toward the future of Native American pottery .

At first glance, the university (total student enrollment of about 40,000) looks like a huge cluster of red-brick buildings with little to offer a Tucson visitor. Yet it holds a modest, but excellent fine arts museum; the outstanding Arizona State Museum with its focus on the peoples of the American Southwest and Northern Mexico; a tiny planetarium; the Center for...
