Estimados Amigos de la TMA,
Our museum membership, which is over 2,500 strong, and growing, includes a diverse group of individuals and families who care deeply about TMA’s mission to connect art to life. To ensure your membership experience is positive and rewarding, we asked for your feedback via an e-survey sent last month. We’ve received over 400 responses as of March 1st – statistically a very high reply rate! Thank you for taking the time to send us your thoughts. Our museum staff will be reviewing member comments over the next few weeks, and I’ll include key takeaways in my April message. As always, you can join or renew your membership from our website: https://www.tucsonmuseumofart.org/membership/ or reach out to our Membership & Development Associate, Isai Pacheco at: email@example.com
Those of you visiting TMA this summer will undoubtedly witness an influx of budding young artists exploring our galleries seeking inspiration for their art projects. Our popular summer art camp for ages 5 – 13 runs from June 5 through August 4. Research shows that early engagement in the arts plays an important role in enhancing the growth of cognitive and emotional pathways as well as boosting arts participation as adults. For more information and registration, please visit our website at: https://www.tucsonmuseumofart.org/art-camp/
“March Madness” most likely brings to mind the NCAA Division Men’s basketball tournament (I’ve learned that Tucson is a basketball town), however, the term might be just as applicable to TMA’s March events calendar. From our spring Artisans Market, featuring 135 unique and local artists and artisans in an outdoor street fair setting (March 3 to 5), to the lecture “Winslow Homer: Art that Challenged America’s Early Beliefs,” presented by Kit Kimball (March 12), to our annual Gala, “On the Western Horizon” (March 18), it’s going to be a very artful month!
I look forward to seeing you in our galleries soon.
