Tucson Trivia - Unusual Art Gallery

You may not consider the library to be a hotspot for artwork but you would be wrong!

It was beautifully restored by the Tucson Historic Preservation Foundation. For more info, click here


  1. The Ignite Sign Art Museum is supposed to be opening in Tucson in a few months--they have been posting a lot of their acquisitions on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Ignite-Sign-Art-Museum-150744465542943/

    1. David - Thank you for this info! I think that signs are an amazing chronicle of urban history. Dianne
