The TMA Holiday Artisans Market and entertainment are free. The three-day event, starting Friday, features 145 artisans.

We’ve had a few months respite from big arts fairs.

Time to bring ’em back, and the Tucson Museum of Art obliges.

That’s not all: There will also be live music and dance performances, and entrance to the museum is free during the three-day event.

It’s happening 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Feb. 16-18 at Tucson Museum of Art, 140 N. Main Ave. tucsonmuseumofart.org  or 520-624-2333.
