Cheap Frills at the Phoenix Art Museum

The economy has been effecting people’s ability to have a good time while doing something unique and cultured for too long.  But there is inexpensive fun to be had right in the heart of our beautiful city at The Phoenix Art Museum, located at 1625 North Central Avenue in Phoenix Arizona. 

I was recently down there for an event the museum was hosting, so I took a tour through the place.  I was amazed at all of the inspiring exhibits and permanent installations there were to see.  There is such a variety to see and I’m not sure you can get through it all in one day.  There are some really odd exhibits as well as some amazing installations. 

My personal favorite is the light installation.  You walk into a darkened room where all the walls are mirrors and the only lights are the tiny color-changing lights that dangle from the ceiling.  But then, there is this amazing installation of hanging pieces of charcoal.  And also this… well maybe you should just check it out yourself.  I’m sure my brief depictions do the pieces no justice.

General admission to the museum is only $10 for adults and $4 for kids.
It’s the perfect way to spend a warm Arizona day, indoors experiencing culture!
