Over the course of National Park Week, from April 14 through April 23, 2017, Tumacácori will celebrate artistic expression of all kinds with an exhibition on display in the breezeway of its historic visitor center. “Art and national parks have always had a close relationship,” says Superintendent Bob Love, “A celebration of art in all its many forms is a fantastic way to celebrate National Park Week and invite visitors to connect with their park.”
The exhibition will feature Tumacácori-related pieces submitted in the preceding weeks by artists of all ages. All media and subjects are welcome. The deadline for submissions is March 31. Submission guidelines are available at www.nps.gov/tuma. Selections will be made by a panel from Tumacácori National Historical Park and the Tubac Center of the Arts. One piece will win the honor of being featured on Tumacácori’s Park Specific Annual Pass for the year 2018.
Entrance to the park will be free during the opening weekend, April 15 and 16, as well as the closing weekend, April 22 and 23. For more information about this and other events at Tumacácori during National Park Week, visit www.nps.gov/tuma or call 520-377-5060.
