As part of its second annual Pop-up Drive Through Sculpture Show now running through June 16, Hacienda Del Sol Guest Ranch Resort hosts a live assemblage art performance by Jimmy Descant on Friday, June 4 at 6:30 p.m.
Abes Bones will perform live as Jimmy creates a work of art in real time for guests to enjoy. A self-taught ‘severe reconstructivist’ assemblage artist and live art performer, Jimmy will be working on his one-of-a-kind piece, “The Shape of AZ, commenting on the Shape of AZ (Mex)” with musical accompaniment. Jimmy will donate 10 percent of the sale of the piece to No More Deaths and 10 percent to THIRST 2021: Artists for Humanity.
After the 45-minute “creative frenzy,” a reception takes place in the resort bar with drinks and discussion, where Jimmy will chat with guests about two of his large sculptures which are showcased near the bar, “Chief Eye-Heart-Gut,” a 10-foot-tall abstract Native archer and “The Strength Of The Sky,” a 10-foot-tall Native inspired monolithic rocket ship.
This special event is part of the social distanced Pop-up Sculpture Show that allows art enthusiasts to “cruise” through the gorgeous hotel property, set amid the area’s natural desertscape, to view incredible large-scale masterpieces by local artists.
Works by the following artists are set throughout the drive through path:

During the event, guests can enjoy a “secret” cocktail created just for the Sculpture Show. Hidden Oasis, a refreshing libation featuring vodka, sake, watermelon puree, lemon juice, cucumber, rosemary and mint, is designed to serve as a “spa day in a glass.” The beverage is $13 and available exclusively through the duration of the show. In addition, guests that mention the Sculpture Show at Hacienda Del Sol’s Terraza Garden Patio and Lounge will also receive a 10 percent discount on food orders throughout the show.
Sponsored by Great Western Bank and Hacienda Del Sol, for the benefit of SculptureTucson, SAACA (Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance), and the Jewish Community Center Sculpture Garden, the show is open seven days a week from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. through Wednesday, June 16.
