Since it opened in 1959 Phoenix Art Museum has become the largest art Museum in the southwestern United States providing access to visual arts and educational programs in Arizona. In the last fifty years millions have visited the Museum to view the over four hundred national and international exhibitions it has hosted. These are shown alongside Phoenix Art Museum’s collection that has grown to over eighteen thousand objects of American, Asian, European, Latin American, Western American, modern and contemporary art, photography, and fashion design. The Museum hosts photography exhibitions through its landmark partnership with The University of Arizona’s Center for Creative Photography in Tucson.

Visitors can also enjoy the interactive PhxArtKids gallery, the lushly landscaped Dorrance Sculpture Garden, dining at the Museum’s full service on-site restaurant Palette that features casual fare made from local organic produce, and shopping at The Museum Store that stocks a comprehensive selection of art books, handcrafted jewelry, home décor, children’s toys, and other beautiful gifts. Also on display in Phoenix Art Museum are the Thorne Miniature Rooms of historic interiors and a collection of works by renowned Arizona artist Philip C. Curtis. The Museum also offers the rental of space for meetings and private events.
