MILLIONS OF FRIENDS.

Phoenix Art Museum celebrates 60 years at the heart of our city.
SEE YOUR MUSEUM / YOUR WORLD / YOURSELF

Through all the years of world-class exhibitions exploring ancient Egypt and the Far East, roaming through Monet’s gardens at Giverny, discovering the wonders of Teotihuacan, and reliving those ever-dazzling moments with Marilyn and Clark in old Hollywood, what mattered most were the experiences that you, our guests, enjoyed when you walked through the galleries, danced in Cummings Great Hall, or got lost in the enveloping darkness of our Kusama room, punctuated only by the brilliance of star-like fireflies. Thank you for making this Museum come to life.
