Rotating exhibitions display some of the 15,000 DeGrazia originals housed in the permanent collection including oils, watercolors, sketches, serigraphs, lithographs, sculptures, ceramics and jewelry. Not only does the rotating gallery showcase unseen treasures from DeGrazia’s vault it also displays some of his most well-known collections such as the “Way of the Cross” which is on display every year for Easter.
“DeGrazia’s Fun and Games”
From the playground to the pool hall, people at play are the subject of “DeGrazia’s Fun and Games”. Playful children, adults, angels, and nuns are featured in this selection of paintings and drawings that span several stylistic eras and more than forty years of Tucson artist Ted DeGrazia’s career. The exhibit will remain on display through January 23rd, 2018.
Best known for his depictions of the traditional Native American and Hispanic cultures of the region, the western cowboy was a less common but enduring theme for the artist. The range-riding, working cowboys featured in this exhibit are a small subset of DeGrazia’s cowboys. His rodeo cowboys have previously been exhibited in DeGrazia’s Rodeo Collection, but most of these images of working cowboys have never been displayed before. This exhibit is on display through January 24th, 2018.
