Phoenix Art Museum, PetSmart® and PetSmart Charities® are pleased to announce a new partnership beginning this holiday season that will provide free museum admission to all military families. Phoenix Art Museum (PAM) will honor the service of veterans, active-duty and retired military personnel through the Military Access Program (MAP), colloquially known as MAP@PAM, with benefits extending to their immediate families. The program will formally launch during PetSmart Light the Night First Friday on December 2, 2016 from 6-10 pm which will include festivities, special discounts and prizes for military families.
The program will initially launch on November 11, 2016, in honor of Veteran’s Day, when the Museum is open from 10 am – 5 pm. Through MAP@PAM sponsored by PetSmart, veterans, active duty, and retired military personnel with valid military ID will receive complimentary admission for themselves, a spouse (or one adult guest 18 and older), and their children aged 17 and under. MAP@PAM provides both general admission ($18 for adults, $15 for senior citizens, $13 for students with ID, $9 for ages 6-17) and admission to ticketed special-engagement exhibitions, including Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic and Emphatics: Avant-Garde Fashion 1963-2013 ($5 each all ages, or $8 for both, all ages).
