Art in the Park Series: Exuberance: An Artistic Botanical Experience

Tubac Presidio State Historic Park

November 14, 2020 to April 10, 2021

Calling all creative thinkers, independent spirits and garden dreamers. The Presidio, dedicated to the conservation and preservation of history and art, is inviting you to participate in an outdoor garden art exhibit for an entire Tubac season! This will be a collection of art installations to be displayed outdoors for public viewing at our 11-acre grounds from November of 2020 until April of 2021. We welcome all artists!

Exuberance: An Artistic Botanical Experience will be a collection of art installations to be displayed outdoors for public viewing at the 8-acre grounds of the Tubac Presidio. It will attract visitors who are interested in garden art created by local artists, gardeners and people like themselves. This endeavor is a celebration of individuality and collaboration, traditional and experimental, natural and artificial. We welcome any art installation that celebrates flora and fauna with emphasis on creative approaches for the garden and with an environmental focus on any of the following: sustainability, climate change, naturalism and native plants.

All components of the installation should withstand all weather conditions. Participants may also create small garden vignettes that capture the essence of outdoor living. It may contain furniture, table settings, shade sails or anything that captures the story as part of a whole. We also encourage installing a stand-alone sculpture piece in any medium that can hold up to Tubac’s varied temperatures and weather.

A celebration is scheduled for November 14, 2020 and Mar 27, 2021, 9 AM - 1 PM for the formal opening and closing dates of the show. Garden Crawls (tours) will be scheduled periodically throughout the season.

If you have any questions, or would like to volunteer or be a sponsor, please do not hesitate to contact Myrna at or 720-220-9307. Deadline for submission is May 31, 2020.
