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.
Phoenix Art Museum opened in 1959. Its founding and development into the leading art museum in the American Southwest reflects the constant commitment from the community and mirrors the growth of Phoenix from a small desert town to the sixth largest city in the United States. Now, the classically progressive look of its 203,000-square-foot building is a work of art in itself. Designed by New York architects Tod Williams/Billie Tsien & Associates in the mid-1990s and expanded by them in 2006, it integrates art and architecture with the southwestern landscape and provides sweeping interior spaces.
Phoenix Art Museum is proud to greet visitors from all corners of the community and the world, and from all walks of life. It is a place with something for everyone, where all are welcome, a place to experience the world's greatest art, a place where imaginations and spirits soar.
