Center for Creative Photography, Tucson
Contemporary art is at the very heart of new artist development in this day and era. The University of Arizona in Tucson is a place where the internationally respected contemporary gallery and art museum is located. The creativity of the young artists is impressive as well as commendable. I wish I had spent more time here.
The museum houses contemporary works by many, major North American photographers like Ansell Adams, and Alfred Stieglitz. The exhibits are changed frequently to allow other artists to be featured. The gallery allows for appointments and call ahead to schedule private viewing of particular photographers. I was excited about viewing some of the works of Ansell Adams, especially of Yosemite and Carlsbad caverns.
PS: Do not leave for tomorrow what you can do today!
The Center for Creative Photography is a gallery on the University of Arizona Campus. It has shows highlighting the photography of old masters, contemporary photographers, and students. It also has archives, a museum and a research center dedicated to photography as an art form and cultural record. It is open from 9 AM to 5 PM Monday through Friday, and Noon to 5PM on weekends. Admission is free. It was closed when I was there so they could set up the showing of Lee Friedlander's work.
If you like photography, The University of Arizona's Center for Creative Photography is worth checking out.
There are exhibitions, they have a renowned print collection, an extensive library and printviewing. You need to schedule an appointment during afternoon printviewing hours, but you have intimate access to original prints.
