Learning from the best!
Mar 2020
When we came for the Center for Creative Photography
, they told it was free.

There were pictures with colors, but most of them were black and white.

Everybody were nice.

I took a good hour and I liked what I saw! I will try those items they said to me.

Worthwhile to see!

Buyer Beware!
Jan 2020
It's obvious from high reviews that the trick here is to only go when there is a special exhibit. No exhibit means no joy. Only a small permanent gallery with small prints by little known artists. Most of it the kind of stuff that makes you think, "How on earth did that make it on the wall." Took me less than 10 minutes to walk through looking for something interesting and finding nothing. Very disappointing.

One display caught my eye. A 3 x 3 matrix of nine 8x10 prints. The top row was 7 feet high, the bottom row was knee high. So, you would need to stand on a chair to see the top, and squat on the floor to see the bottom. Too bad the center does not teach how to present art.

Nice place to spend an hour

We were in Tucson on a rainy day and landed at a few museums. I like photography and made sure to stop here. Interesting exhibit in a small space. What I most enjoyed were the drawers of photos that were housed in a cabinet near the end. Lot of creativing things going on there.

The center is located on the University of Arizona campus. They continually change their exhibits - so it is best to check first if they are open.

Exhibitions vary
Oct 2019 • Couples
We didn't enjoy our visit as much as we expected. The exhibition galleries were filled with one exhibition that was only moderately interesting, and the Legacy gallery was likewise not something we were looking for. I guess you have to research before you go.

Photophobia is well fed here

If you're interested in cameras/photography, then this is an ideal place for you to visit.
I've been there a few times and always see/hear/learn something new/interesting/helpful.

Loved the Richard Avedon exhibit
May 2019 • Couples
My wife and I enjoyed our visit to the Center for Creative Photography on the U of Arizona campus. Comfortable open space with a smallish gallery (surprising given the vast numbers of photos they archive). We saw the Richard Avedon exhibit which we very much enjoyed.

Buried on the Arizona University Campus...

Center founded by Ansel Adams offers small gallery display and special shows, currently Richard Avedon Relationships until May 15. Cheerful student guides, catalog for research and more. Signage from the street could be better, but worth the on-campus hunt! Campus garage parking a block or so away. Admission fee.

Inspiration to Photography
Mar 2019
I stopped in at the Center for Creative Photography on the U of Arizona campus and it was inspirational. The gallery is spacious and seeing the amazing photographs of Richard Avedon and Ansel Adams was inspirational. This center is an amazing resource, the gallery is open to the public and free, with donations encouraged.

Wonderful Gallery
Feb 2019 • Couples
We were encouraged to stop here during our short vacation in Tucson and were glad we did. The Avedon exhibit was outstanding and we loved looking at some of Ansel Adams' best works. The museum is small and easily explored in 1-2 hours. It is well worth a stop.
