On the first Thursday of the month the Tucson Museum of Art and Historic Block offers extended hours and pay-what-you-wish admission from 5:00pm until 8:00pm. On May’s First Thursday explore the feature exhibitions Popol Vuh and the Maya Art Storytelling, and Jose Luis Cuevas: Unpardonable Sin.
At 5:00 pm in conjunction with Popol Vuh and the Maya Art of Storytelling, join contemporary artist Justin Favela as he offers insights to his creative practice and his relationships with the Popol Vuh story and the work of Carlos Mérida. Then, enjoy the kick-off for his Family Fiesta—a public celebration and performance work featuring his family’s traditions, live music, art-making activities and more!
This event is a part of the 2nd annual Pueblos del Maíz in Tucson, AZ, presented by the UNESCO Tucson Creative City of Gastronomy. In partnership with three other designated food heritage cities — San Antonio, TX, Merida MX, and Puebla MX — Tucson will host the first weekend of a month-long international food and culture celebration. The festivities will include regional food vendors, chef demonstrations, live music and entertainment, educational panels, art installations, and so much more celebrating the rich traditions of maíz.
Join us May 4th to 7th in Tucson, Arizona to launch this monthlong event! Visit the Pueblos del Maíz website to learn more https://www.pueblosdelmaiz.com/
