Public Arts & Murals Tour with Wine Tasting Experience
$55/member, $65/non-member – Price includes wine tasting
Recent years have seen an explosion of public art throughout Tucson. This tour, led by tour guide Dorothy Yanez, begins at the Presidio Museum and proceeds into the downtown area, stopping at numerous public art pieces and murals. At each stop you will learn about the artist and the artwork. Several new murals have been added to the tour route since Dorothy began giving these tours. The tour is approximately two miles and includes stops south of Congress Street. Dorothy will be on a microphone for better hearing.
At the end of the tour, visitors will enjoy a tasting of local and regional wines (included in the cost of the tour) at St. Cruz Bar at the new Leo Kent Hotel, an urban boutique hotel with a contemporary mix of vintage, Southwestern accents and cozy charm. This is the last stop on the tour, so attendees are welcome to stay after the wine tasting for a glass of wine (at your own cost), or head to other areas of downtown. Dorothy will also lead those who don’t want to linger back to the Presidio Museum.
