Welcome To The Oasis Project

Made possible by a grant from the Bert W. Martin Foundation, the Oasis Project is an innovative performing arts program designed to build sustaining relationships between creative artists and the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. These programs are hosted in the Museum’s intimate Warden Oasis Theater to connect the community to the Museum’s conservation mission in new ways.
