Make certain to visit the Main Library to view the Brazilian Art and Culture Exhibit. On display through September 25, 2009, the exhibit includes paintings of contemporary Brazilian painters living in Tucson: Haydee Peck and Maria Teresa Kolling. The exhibition also includes artifacts from the Jequitinhonha Valley, a region located in the northwest of the state of Minas Gerais. The population lives in poor conditions; however, the region is known for its works in wood and ceramics that still have traces of the indigenous and Black culture.
The Brazilian Art and Culture exhibit is part of the Tucson Brazilian Week 2009 Celebration. This five-day event - celebrated September 7-12 - includes percussion, dance and Capoeira workshops, a Brazilian film festival, a Brazilian showcase of music, and several restaurants offering Brazilian cuisine.
