The Best Big City for Art is Tucson Arizona!
American Style Ranks Tucson #18 Best Big City for Art and we couldn’t agree more!
Tucson is Covered in Artwork!
Murals, murals everywhere! The Tucson Mural Arts Program was created to help diminish property damage and vandalizing in Downtown Tucson.
These murals have not only brightened the community streets, it has given many artists the opportunity to showcase their work and talent to the public.
The City of Tucson Mural Program has attracted many new artists seeking their big break, as well as turning prior graffiti taggers into graffiti artists. Also many struggling artists can now have the chance to get paid and to be recognized.
Tucson assigns artists to the wall owners, allowing communication and planning for the outdoor gallery. This has been a great way for Tucson to showcase its cultural diversity, which has caught the attention of national press and media.
While you walk the streets of Downtown Tucson sometimes it feels as if you are walking through an art museum. Downtown is the best place to see a lot of murals in a small area.
So get you camera or cell phone ready because mosaic, hand painted and kiln fired tile murals are abundant and easy to find.
If you’re an aspiring artist and want to apply to paint a wall mural, email TMAP@TucsonArtsBrigade.org.
Have a great day,
