Pima Community College will sponsor Tucson Modernism Week with 23 events Nov. 9-11.
Events, lectures and tours organized by the Tucson Historic Preservation Foundation will focus on the modernist buildings on Broadway Boulevard between Country Club Road and Campbell Avenue.
Some events require tickets and reservations.
“We are honored to be able to play a role in building a greater appreciation of our city’s historic character,” interim Chancellor Suzanne Miles said.
“The Tucson Historic Preservation Foundation considers Pima an invaluable partner in our effort to protect Tucson’s heritage,” said Demion Clinco, the organization’s president. “By sponsoring Tucson Modernism Week, Pima has found a new and exciting way to enrich and educate our community.”
The weekend’s worth of events will start with a speech by Anne Rysdale, previously Arizona’s only registered, practicing female architect.
The festivities end at noon on Sunday, Nov. 11, with a walking tour of the Tucson Community Center landscape designed by the landscape architect Garrett Eckbo.
