A rich variety of art at a small museum

This two-story art museum on the corner edge of the university offers surprisingly compelling exhibits. My favorite was about art conservation, such as how to protect art from water damage, termites, vandalism, etc. I was engrossed by each of the pieces used to tell the story, which was also surprisingly candid. One bare frame used to hold a famous painting stolen from the museum before cameras were installed. Another exhibit included artists identified by the Nazis as enemies of their sick state, Picasso and other famous names among them. I liked the concept of celebrating these artists while exposing this piece of history I hadn't heard about. The exhibits aren't very big, mostly one large room each. But they are interesting and diverse. This is a great place to spend an hour.

Easy to access also with bus which stops just outside entrance on Speedway. I spent a couple of hours enjoying a small but varied collection of great artwork. The history of Arizona is well presented, and there are several benches, from which you can study the artwork. Water bottles have to be left downstairs in the reception area.

Really enjoyed the variety of exhibits at this small museum at U of A. I thought the price was a little steep for how small the museum was but the shows they had while we were there were thought-provoking and informative.

Art fron the Kress Collection includes the twenty-six altar panels from the Spanish Cathedral of Cuidad Roderigo. Christ's life is well-documented alongside each panel. This is a truly beautiful work of art to experience. Like many museums , this has been on the receiving end of many benefactors. You can delight in seeing a Jackson Pollack, a Rothko and a Georgia O' Keefe.
Parking is easy and free at the weekend.The main gate of the univesity is a short walk to the museum
