Engaging, Enriching ... Essential


The University of Arizona Museum of Art is dedicated to presenting the highest quality exhibitions, events, and programs. Due to recent budgetary realities, we've had to make some changes to our hours and admission rates, including exciting new evening hours. Beginning September 1st, we will be closed Mondays and Tuesdays, and open Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday 9:00 am - 5:00 pm, Thursday 9:00 am - 8:00 pm, and Sunday 12:00-5:00 pm. General admission will increase to $8, with a discounted $6.50 rate for Seniors 65 and up and groups of 10 or more.  The Museum will continue to be free for members, students with ID, UA faculty and staff with ID, military personnel, AAM members, visitors with a SNAP card or Tribal ID, and those under 18. We look forward to seeing you for the 2015-2016 season!


520:365 is ready to roll TOMORROW! The prints are ready, the beer has been brewed, and we're excited to see you all at Borderlands Brewery tomorrow night from 5:00-8:00 pm. Local artists will be selling amazing prints, all available to purchase for just $25. Come experience great art while partaking in great beer. Best yet? The event is free! Attendees will want to bring cash, as not all artists will be accepting credit cards. Learn more
