Under Construction:

In April of 2018, Tucson Museum of Art received a $2.5 million gift from trustee and Tucson business leader, I. Michael Kasser. The gift is the single most significant individual donor gift in the museum’s history. It is being used to construct a 6,000 square-foot gallery, to be named the Kasser Family Wing, and will be used to exhibit pre-Columbian and Latin American art. The vision of the new wing project is to unify the main museum building with the John K. “Jack” Goodman Pavilion, increased exhibition space. Additional updates around the four-acre property include outdoor improvements to the TMA Sculpture Garden, re-design of the Plaza of Pioneers, emphasis and support of the main entrances, and completion of critical HVAC and safety measures.

Andy Anderson, L.L.C., Architecture & Planning is the architect and Kittle Design and Construction is the general contractor on the project. The project broke ground spring of 2019 and is expected to be complete by spring of 2020. Learn more about the project from TMA here.

Completed in October of 2017, Tucson Museum of Art underwent a $750,000 renovation.
