Iconic Arizona: Celebrating the Arizona Centennial with Photographs
from the Center for Creative Photography

Take a visual tour of the state's famous places and iconic symbols, from the Grand Canyon to the Hoover Dam, and from the majestic saguaro to San Xavier del Bac. Phoenix Art Museum commemorates the 100th year of Arizona statehood by drawing examples from one of the state's treasures—the photographic collection at the Center for Creative Photography.

This exhibition brings together works by the Center’s most beloved photographers, like Ansel Adams, Edward Weston and Aaron Siskind, as well as some of the state’s great image makers, like David Muench, Dick Arentz and John Schaefer.
