Tucson Art Museums

Tucson has a long history of supporting both fine art and Native Arts.  The Tucson Museum of Art which is a private institution was founded in 1924 and the Arizona State Museum which specializes in Native Arts and Archeology is Arizona’s oldest museum having been in existence before Arizona was even a state.  The Maynard Dixon Museum next to Medicine Man Gallery has been featuring the Life Works of Maynard Dixon for over 20 years with over 150 original pieces of artwork, the largest Dixon collection in any museum holdings, which also includes Dixon’s easel, poetry, books, photos by Ansel Adams and Dorothea Lange.


Maynard Dixon Museum


Dr. Mark Sublette who is the Maynard Dixon Museum’s founder and Dixon expert says “The Museum has tried to capture the essence of Dixon, the artist as well as the individual, through not only his artwork but through his letters and poetry.” Sublette’s Maynard Dixon Museum, the only museum dedicated to the lifework of Maynard Dixon, has succeeded in that goal. Over 150 pieces of original Maynard Dixon artwork including paintings, drawings, his easel, poetry, and original Maynard Dixon ephemera can be seen at the Museum. The Maynard Dixon Museum, located within Medicine Man Gallery in Tucson, is a treasure trove for those who love Dixon. Admission is free.


Hours : Monday through Saturday 10am – 5pm
