Can I purchase tickets in advance?

Ticket reservations are unavailable. Once you purchase your ticket, you are free to explore the exhibitions with no time constraints. To purchase an admission ticket, please check in with our front desk staff.

Where do I park when visiting the UAMA?

We recommend parking at the Park Avenue Garage located at 1140 North Park Ave. There is a parking fee of $2 per hour on weekdays, and no charge to park on weekends. We are located on the southeast corner of the Park and Speedway intersection.

The Park Avenue Garage has designated parking spaces near the elevators on the east side of the building. More accessible parking spaces are available in front of Slonaker House located at 1027 E. 2nd Street. Please note that you will need to download the Passport Parking App to pay to park in front of Slonaker House. The Museum is just a short walk north on Olive Road.

Does the museum validate parking?

The Museum does not validate parking from any of the UArizona public parking garages.

Can I see the famous Woman-Ochre by Willem de Kooning?

Yes, you can! Woman-Ochre is on view in the Modern Art Gallery.

Can the University of Arizona Museum of Art authenticate or appraise a work of art for me?

UAMA staff adhere to a Code of Ethics that prohibits them from authenticating or appraising works of art, due to a potential conflict of interest. However, the following agencies have searchable databases of experts. Note: most professional appraisers charge a fee for their services.

I am an artist who would like to exhibit at the UAMA. What is the process for submitting my work?

The majority of exhibitions at the UAMA originate with the curators, and rarely come from unsolicited submissions. However, taking into account our mission and vision statement, if you would like to submit your work for consideration please send the curatorial team an e-mail and provide a link to your website. If further correspondence is warranted, you will be asked to provide a formal proposal that can be presented for approval.

I have a work of art that I would like to donate to the museum. What is the process?

Please see our Ways to Give page.

I want to use an image of one of your artworks for a project. How do I do that?

Please contact Kristen Schmidt, Registrar, for Rights & Reproductions requests.

How do I get artwork from the UAMA in my office on campus?

In the past there was an active Campus Loan program, which has been discontinued. Current industry practice allows lending only to nonprofit, accredited museums whose security standards and environmental controls (temperature, humidity, light levels) match those of the UAMA.

What is the UAMA's policy on face coverings?

Face coverings are a great way to lower the risk of respiratory virus transmission, and are available at our admissions desk for visitors who wish to wear one. If you have symptoms of COVID-19 or other respiratory viruses like flu, cold, or RSV, please follow CDC guidelines.
