Tubac, Arizona is not just any historic Southwest town; it is a rapidly growing international art destination. Tubac was estab- lished in 1752 but its art culture began in the 1940s and continued to attract working artists who established themselves here throughout the 1970s when the town’s slogan was born: “Where Art and History Meet.” Today Tu- bac is a mecca of working artists’ studios and fine art gal- leries representing local, national and internation- al artists in all mediums from traditional South- west to contemporary and abstract. Diagonally across the street from La Entrada de Tubac is the vibrant Tubac Center of the Arts known affectionately as the heart of the local arts scene. The TCA offers exceptionally curated rotating art exhibits, a master’s collection gallery of past and present local artists and a gift shop of members work.
