The Tucson Desert Art Museum was excited to welcome over twenty students and chaperones from the Vail Art Camp on Friday, June 16th. Their visit consisted of a general tour of the museum where they learned about Navajo textiles, landscape paintings, historic maps, as well as enjoy the three new exhibits: “ The Wayfinder’s Perspective: Landscape Paintings from the Permanent Collection,” “The Wayfinder’s Dilemma*: Landscape Photographs by Camden Hardy,” and “Colors To Dye For.” Following the tour, the students enjoyed an art project where they painted their own Navajo textile design from the influences of their tour.
