For more than 30 years, the Tucson Museum of Art League has organized Dinner à l’art as a delightful way to support the museum’s mission of connecting art to life.
Experience the rich spices, the vibrant colors, and the diverse yet similar flavors that these beautiful places on the rim of this sparkling sea have in common. Savor these traditional Mediterranean foods in our host’s Modernist-inspired home featuring a contemporary art collection acquired over the past 40+ years. Enjoy the mountain and city views and share with the hosts some of their favorite foods from their travels in this part of the world.
