Tucson Museum of Art Highlights Local Artist

Works by a local artist will be on display in February at the Tucson Museum of Art. The exhibit, “Mid-Century Perspectives: Paintings by Andy Burgess and Objects of Modern Design,” will run through April 22.

Burgess is known for drawings, paintings, and photographs of urban landscapes developed over the last 20 years. He has traveled the world while living and working in Great Britain, Spain, Washington, D.C., and New York. Burgess moved to Tucson in 2009. Included in the exhibition is a selection of designed objects and furniture by Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles and Ray Eames, Harry Bertoia, Rose Cabat, and others.

The exhibition kicks off tomorrow, Feb. 1, in conjunction with the museum’s monthly Free First Thursdays program. There will be a selection of mid-century cars organized by Alex Mastrangelo, furniture vignettes from AZModern, live music by Jazz Pyramid Scheme, and in-gallery activities. The free event is open 5-8 p.m.
