Known especially for photography, the revered gallery provides a spectacular launch to the fall art season. Famed Mexican photographer Graciela Iturbide is coming to Tucson in honor of her first major show in the city. The exhibition, “Sueños, Simbolos, y Narración (Dreams, Symbols and Storytelling),” will be showing some of her greatest pics, Her beloved “Mujer Angel, Desierto de Sonora” is just one treasure among the 35 gelatin silver prints on view.
