NOMAD DINNER NO. 2

Coming together and celebrating all the little things that add up to the big things in life.  This is a good way to keep your steam and raise each other up.  Tucson is a collection of a diverse many people., including an above par population of women.  Some native, some passing through, some replanted.  One thing we love about Tucson is it's acceptance and hardiness.  It is what many if us have come to think of a a very old west ethos.  Work hard, endure, exchange and embrace.

Inner Circle.png

Inner Circle is a concept by Puspa Lohmeyer, photographer, trickster and magician.  The title refers to the need to protect your inner space from outside influences.  So much is pelting us, pulling us and inspiring us, even, every moment of our days.  However, we all need a space to be free from all of these things or to simply process them into edible bites.

Featured are the Hammered Hoops Collection from MAST co-creator and inspirator, Sofie Albertsen. 

Available online and in store now.

In case you hadn't heard, there is a very exciting exhibit heading to the Tucson Museum of Art.  30 Americans showcases works by many of the most important African American artists of the last three decades.

This provocative exhibition focuses on issues of racial, sexual, and historical identity in contemporary culture while exploring the powerful influence of artistic legacy and community across generations.

All of the artworks in the exhibition are from the Rubell’s permanent collection. A comprehensive 224 page hardcover exhibition catalog with essays by Robert Hobbs, Glenn Ligon, Franklin Sirmans, and Michele Wallace accompanies the exhibition. Artists whose work is represented in this sweeping survey includes icons such as Mark Bradford, Nick Cave, Robert Colescott, Glenn Ligon, Kerry James Marshall, Mickalene Thomas, and Kehinde Wiley.

Art is an essential ingredient to the fabric of any thriving and striving culture, we're excited to see Tucson's art scene continue to evolve, challenge and ignite!

During your visit, please make a stop in the TMA gift shop.  MAST will be the featured artist for the month of October. Expect some different and more out-of-the-box designs.
