Among the many ways we support the community is by hosting Breakfasts with History.  In this lecture series, knowledgeable speakers provide insight into the varied and interesting history of life in the Santa Cruz River Valley. 

In the spring, the society celebrates with an Annual Picnic at a historic site. Also, periodically we sponsor field trips to archaeological and historical sites.

Exhibit: “If you believe in spirit it is here:” Tubac’s Early Art Colonists

September 30, 2022 @ 10:00 am - November 14, 2022 @ 4:30 pm

We are pleased to announce the next collaborative exhibit between the Tubac Historical Society and The Tubac Center of the Arts, featuring the early artists who lived and worked in Tubac between 1948 and 1989.  The exhibit has been compiled by The Tubac Historical Society and will be displayed in the Library and Studio Gallery at the Tubac Center of the Arts from September 30th to November 14th.

The artwork for the exhibit was loaned to us by our fellow Tubaquenos following an appeal sent in mid-May to our membership.  We’ve included a rich diversity of mediums – paintings, sculpture, jewelry, books, fountains, pottery – nearly 60 items created by more than 20 artists and only half of what was offered.  Your enthusiastic responses helped bring to life the camaraderie of this early group of settlers who started Tubac on the road to “Where Art and History Meet.”

Parallel to the exhibit at the Tubac Center of the Arts, The Tubac Historical Society will be offering for sale several paintings by former Tubac artist, Earl Dravis, at our Customs House Visitor Center at 6 Burruel Street, across from the Presidio.  And our gift shop also features cards, posters, maps, and books by local artists.

Please join us at The Tubac Center of the Arts on Friday, September 30th from 5 pm – 7pm for the opening reception or visit The Tubac Historical Society at 6 Burruel Street Wednesdays to Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm.

The hours of operation for the Tubac Center of the Arts are:September – May:
Monday – Saturday 10:00 am – 4:30 pm
Sunday 12:00 pm – 4:30 pm
