Where Nature, Art & Culture Connect

Culture in the Tucson region and Sonoran Desert

The Sonoran Desert is a vast desert stretching between multiple cities, towns and two countries. From the farming villages in Northern Mexico to the downtown Tucson’s hipster scene, multitudes of different ethnicities, subgroups, and economic status are represented. And each can have a distinctive quality that blends in with each other making this region especially vibrant.

Tohono Chul showcases the diverse culture of Tucson and the Sonoran Desert by providing a place for artists to work and showcase their art, hosting special events, concerts and trunk shows along with our educational offerings of classes, lectures, workshops and travel opportunities.

We hope you take advantage of all we offer. Sign up for our bi-weekly newsletter, the Desert Express, to stay abreast of all we do.
