Willem de Kooning’s Woman-Ochre – stolen from University of Arizona Museum of Art in 1985, recovered in 2017 and now expertly restored by the J. Paul Getty Museum – returns to Tucson this fall.

Visitors can see the prized painting at the UAMA for the first time in 37 years and learn about its harrowing, but heartwarming, journey home. A companion exhibition, Abstract Perspectives in Mid-Century Art, examines the cultural milieu that surrounded de Kooning’s artistic development from 1950-1970 with works by peers like Jackson PollockMark RothkoLouise Nevelson and Elaine de Kooning

The historic homecoming will be marked by events and programming on topics ranging from art crime to art conservation. The exhibition runs through May 20, 2023.

Admission:

$8 – General
$6 – Seniors 65+ and groups of 10+
Free for Museum members, students with ID, University of Arizona faculty and staff, active military personnel, AAM members, visitors with a SNAP card or Tribal ID, and children

On Oct. 6 at Centennial Hall, the Tucson community is invited to a free, ticketed screening of “The Thief Collector” – a documentary that explores Woman-Ochre’s disappearance and how a mild-mannered couple could have pulled one of the greatest art heists of a generation. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers. 

“Restored: The Return of Woman-Ochre” is part of the Arizona Arts Signature Series, a curated set of events and experiences this fall designed to highlight the amazing work being done across the division.
