Tubac Presidio State Historic Park - Visitor Center
1 Burruel St Tubac, Arizona 85646
Tubac Presidio State Historic Park hosts its first ever outdoor art exhibition entitled “The Exuberance!: An Artistic and Botanic Experience” from Nov. 14, 2020, to April 30, 2021. The Exuberance! will showcase local Tubac and Arizona artists’ creations of garden sculptures, outdoor art installations and contemporary garden vignettes. Tubac’s reputation for “where art and history meet” is the central theme of the show. However, many artists have chosen to create pieces that also address environmental issues, sustainability, climate change, naturalism and the use of native plants. All of the pieces will be available in an online auction that will be held from April 10-17, 2021.
Approximately 45 pieces created by 25 artists will be included in the exhibit, six of which are considered “major pieces” due to their size and complexity. While The Exuberance! is on display, there are plans for free guided tours, called “Garden Crawls” that will include a few of the artists who will describe their pieces and the inspiration for them. This schedule will be available on the exhibit’s website, https://www.tubacpresidio.org/exuberance-experience. The Exuberance! will be available to view during the State Historic Park’s operating hours, from 9 am to 5 pm Wednesday through Sunday, and is included with admission.
