Profile - Phoenix Art Museum

Phoenix Art Museum has become a popular Valley oasis, a retreat from the desert and the traditional outdoor activities. The Museum is always 72˚ with 50% humidity, which not only protects the art from environmental damage but also makes the Museum the perfect attraction for the entire family all year long. And, with the completion of a stunning $50 million expansion in 2006, it is a "must see."

With popular and unique exhibitions of the world’s best art, casual and fun events and activities, Movies at the Museum, Music at the Museum, great shopping and dining, and many comfortable architectural niches where one can just relax and rejuvenate, Phoenix Art Museum truly means “cool art, in a cool place.” Who needs the mall? Make Phoenix Art Museum your personal desert paradise.

Imagine spending an afternoon with Monet, Picasso, Frida Kahlo and Georgia O’Keeffe, then shopping in The Museum Store for that perfect gift, and topping it off with lunch or a pastry in Art Museum Café. There’s fun for the whole family in the interactive ArtWorks Gallery, and imaginations run wild in the historic interiors of the Thorne miniature rooms. With a collection of over 17,000 works of American, Asian, European, Latin American, modern and contemporary, Western American art, and fashion design, there’s something for every taste at Phoenix Art Museum. You can even match your fashion sense with that of the great designers in the Museum’s fashion design gallery, featuring today’s hip styles and those spanning the past four centuries from the Museum’s collection. And, Phoenix Art Museum’s stunning exhibitions bring mas­terpieces from around the globe to your own backyard.
