The Tucson Pima Arts Council (TPAC) is pleased to announce that due to a generous donation of $21,000 from Jim Click and Fletcher McCusker, the Fall Open Studio Tour is back in action for 2015. The tour will take place November 14 and 15 from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
The Open Studio Tour (OST) is a weekend long celebration of Pima County art, where the public is invited to tour the studios of artists from all over Pima County.
Earlier this month, TPAC announced cancellation of the tour as a result of diminished funding. After hearing the news, arts supporters Jim Click and Fletcher McCusker responded with an incredible donation to keep the event running. “Our family has been blessed by this community and when I heard the news I just felt compelled to help out,” said Click. “My wife and I are fans of the many artisans here in Tucson and know how hard they work to make sure this community thrives.”
Thank you for your continued support of the arts in Tucson and Pima County Mr Click & Mr. McCusker!
