The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures, a Blue Star Museum that offers free admission to active-duty military and their family from Memorial Day-Labor Day, unveils Borrowed Time / Borrowed Books featuring six miniature libraries, constructed of steel, which were inspired by iconic libraries featured in the following classic films and shows: All the Presidents Men, Fahrenheit 451, Wings of Desire, The Time Machine, The Breakfast Club, and Time Enough at Last (Twilight Zone, season 1, episode 8).
The artist is Jill Orlov, a Baltimore-based architect-turned-miniature-metalsmith. Using off-the-shelf steel bars, strips, and tubes, Orlov cuts, welds, and shapes the steel to create these libraries from our cultural collective memory.

In the United States in the 19th century, artists were drawn to far-flung destinations in the Americas and the West to portray new and fascinating lands and establish their careers through their photography, paintings, and drawings. This exhibition focuses on historical and contemporary artworks from the Tucson Museum of Art’s permanent collection that identify specific landmarks created by travelers who encounter them with a new sense of discovery. Each work of art serves as a visual travelogue of the artists’ journeys, at the Tucson Museum of Art.
