 The I-19 and Mexico 15

Between Tucson and Hermosillo, Mexico, there is a fantastic amount of artists and art. The Tubac Center of the Arts has worked with a variety of community partners and governmental institutions to build a different view of southern Arizona and Sonora, Mexico. Culture is a great bridge to bring our communities together in friendship and collaboration.

The Tubac Center of the Arts looks at the I-19 and the Mexican15 in as corridors of art and culture, of exceptional gastronomy, strong, mutually beneficial economies, and friendships.

In that regard, it is a great pleasure to offer this exhibition to southern Arizona. For more information, please contact or call 520-398-2371.
