Walk the grounds of the Hacienda Del Sol Guest Ranch Resort to notice our love of and dedication to the arts! Manage to tear your eyes from the spectacular mountain vistas and you'll notice sculptures, paintings, pottery, photography, and tile-work perfectly accenting and enhancing your surroundings. Some pieces are more robust and obvious - like The Bull by Carlos Carulo just outside of Terazza Garden Patio & Lounge. Others are more subtle like Ted Silverman's Funny Bone, or Joe Pagac's mural on the outside wall of the Catalina Pool bar. Yet more are "hidden" in corners, among plants, or along walkways.
"Funny Bone" Ted Silverman, Ceramic
At any time there are well over 100 unique pieces throughout the property. They may be found across the grounds, in the restaurants, meeting rooms, and hallways. Many of the pieces can be purchased while others are simply on loan or ours to keep. All are here for our guests to enjoy. Feel free to download or request a Hacienda Del Sol Art Guide here or request one at the front desk to get a little further insight into our offerings!

Our dedication to the arts doesn't end at the borders of the resort. We are thrilled to sponsor and promote local projects like the first annual Sculpture Show and Sale organized by Sculpture Tucson.
This wonderful event will launch at Brandi Fenton Memorial Park with a ticketed Patron's event / cocktail party Friday, April 6, 2018 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. This pre-event soirée offers a private sneak-peek and sale of the art featured in the weekend-long show, a proclamation and talk by Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild, and a Keynote presentation by artist Terrol Dew Johnson.
Saturday, April 7 9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Sunday, April 8 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. the show is open to the public. Visitors can admire and purchase the art and get to know the sculptors in-person. Sculpture Tucson's first annual Sculpture Show and Sale will be a wonderful opportunity for sculpture artists to showcase and sell their work and for art lovers to collect and connect with the artists.
Not only will you see fantastic art and meet local artists, but you will hear the tunes of some of Tucson's greatest live musical acts like Jeannie Walker and Patrick Kelly, Red Clay Trio, Ras Brothers, The George Howard Band, Tucson Junior Strings, Brian Dean, Gracie Jessop and The Falcons.
We at Hacienda Del Sol are thrilled to sponsor this event and look forward to seeing you there!
Check out some of the artist videos below. If you head over to the Sculpture Festival you might even see some work by these talented, local artists.
Make an arty weekend of it. Visit Hacienda Del Sol and immerse yourself in the arts before and after attending the Sculpture Show. Grab a bite to eat at one of our two award-winning restaurants or enjoy a drink on our air-conditioned patio.
