Tucson Folk Festival Joins The Rialto Gallery Project
Tucson Folk Festival is joining the Rialto Theatre Gallery Project from Friday, June 4th through June 26th!
The Tucson Folk Festival presents a collection of some of their favorite festival posters from its start in 1986 through their 36th Annual Festival that took place in 2021.
Thank you to our TKMA Gallery Committee for organizing this exhibit!-
Terri Edmonson, Linda Lou Reed, Katie Popiel, and Matt Rolland
The Rialto Gallery Project sponsored by Lerner & Rowe Injury Attorneys takes place every Friday and Saturday night from 6-9 PM, and is FREE to the public. The event showcases photos and posters from past live events, with images curated from the photography of C. Elliott and Mark A. Martinez, and event poster designs from Ryan Trayte. Attendees can also listen to free live music on the Rialto patio several nights of the exhibit, as well as audio from 2021 Tucson Folk Festival performances inside the gallery.
Reservations are encouraged and given priority, but walk-ins are welcome!
Make your reservation here. Safety protocols will be strictly enforced, including temperature checks at the door, social distancing measures, and masks required while inside the theatre (no cocktails will be permitted indoors).
The Rialto patio bar will be open for guests to purchase a cocktail and popcorn from Uncle Bob’s Popcorn before or after the event. Rialto merchandise, event posters, and exhibit photos will be for sale, and donations will be accepted to help raise funds for the official reopening of the theatre. This event is sponsored in part by The Prime Leaf, The Heath Team – Nova Home Loans, The Flin Apartment Project, Mister Car Wash, Chasse Building Team, Simpleview, and KXCI Community Radio.
