Phoenix Art Museum


When it comes to art, few names draw as much as interest as the Phoenix Art Museum, the largest of its kind in the Southwest. The museum, which opened its doors more than 50 years ago, is home to 18,000 works, spanning exhibits that showcase American, Asian, European, Latin American, Western American and contemporary art. Among its recent exhibits was “Samurai,” which displayed more than 140 pieces of warrior regalia and which traced its evolution through the centuries. Its short distance from the state Capitol makes it among the favorite places for Capitol regulars and their families to visit. The Arizona Capitol Times, for example, often holds its annual Best of the Capitol event at the Phoenix Art Museum.
