Tubac Center of the Arts
The Core of Art in Tubac
There’s Something for Everyone
Tubac Center of the Arts is the “Core of Art” in Tubac. The art center was established in 1961, as a nucleus of artists organized into the Santa Cruz Valley Art Association (SCVAA). Tubac Center of the Arts offers changing nationally juried art exhibitions, opportunities for artists to exhibit their work, art workshops, lectures, a performing arts series, special events, a children’s summer arts program, and a gift shop with work by regional artists.
We are located at 9 Plaza Road, in the historic artist community of Tubac, AZ, about 40 miles south of Tucson and 17 miles north of Nogales off Interstate 19. Nestled in the Santa Cruz River Valley between the Tumacacori, Santa Rita and San Cayetano Mountains, Tubac offers much to its visitors – recreation, lodging, restaurants, galleries, artists’ studios, the Tubac Presidio State Historic Park, and the Tumacacori National Historical Monument.
Tubac offers a rich history as well as an artistic experience. Just a 45-minute drive south of Tucson, the blue skies and mountainous vistas surround this laid back community offering visitors a respite and retreat from the hustle of everyday life.
