I cannot say enough amazing things about the event team at the Phoenix Art Museum. Cori and her team are absolutely amazing. The events industry is a challenging industry and very demanding - but they do it with such grace, sincerity and kindness. Keep up the amazing work.
I really enjoyed my time at the Phoenix art museum. There is so much to see and read, 2 hours wasn't even enough to see everything. Get there early, and make a day of it so you can read, and take in all of the exhibits. I will be visiting again since it is free for military, and I didn't get to see and enjoy 4 of the exhibits. Also, dress comfortable, and in light clothing, it gets warm with so many people visiting during the free second Sundays.
Great museum. I am always excited to visit the Phoenix art museum. The exhibits and events that they hold are exquisite. The wonderful staff members do so much to give back to the local community. This is a museum everyone should try and support.
An art museum the size and quality befitting a cosmopolitan city that Phoenix is, has no African art? You wouldn't even know that Africa existed visiting this museum. Also the "cafe" is very expensive. So much for bringing art to the citizens of Phoenix. Maybe it should be relocated to Scottsdale?
I loved spending time going through the different galleries of the art museum! Art never ceases to amaze! There will always be some new creation that strikes you differently each time you visit. There are even some Fridays when it's free to go and visit the museum so there's really no excuse to not go!!
