Robert Barber’s art is a hidden treasure in Tucson. At least until now. When two MOCA curators opened the door to Barber’s garage studio in 2013, they found hundreds of Barber’s artwork—reflecting work of 75. After carefully restoring and selecting over 200 pieces of artwork, Robert Barber’s work is now shared for the very first time with the public at a exhibit called “Robert Barber Retrospective” at MOCA. Barber’ work and style is described as a rarity. His classical techniques aren’t being taught much in art schools today. At age 92, the artist, World War II vet and a sixth grade TUSD teacher for 30 years still paint everyday.
