October 7th, 2017 – February 18th, 2018
The Phippen Museum in Prescott, Arizona is especially proud to announce their collaboration with Phoenix Art Museum in the creation of a very special upcoming exhibition, Western Treasures of the Phoenix Art Museum, on display from October 7th, 2017 through February 18th, 2018.
With an ongoing mission to enrich lives and communities by connecting people to great art from around the world, Phoenix Art Museum has built an international reputation for excellence.
And judging from the amazing progress they have made in the past 50 years, they have more than succeeded in their efforts, hosting more than 400 exhibitions, growing their collection to over 18,000 works of art and receiving millions of visitors.
But having so many objects in their collection, Phoenix Art Museum also has the difficult task of choosing which outstanding pieces will be included in their captivating exhibits. That means some artwork is rarely displayed. But Western Treasures of the Phoenix Art Museum will give some of their incredible Western artwork the opportunity to travel north and visit a more rural audience in Arizona’s Central Highlands.
Featuring stunning fine art from some of the nation’s most revered Western artists, including Frederic Remington, Joe Beeler, James Swinnerton and Gunnar Widforss, this magnificent display is a tribute to all the artists who have pursued this subject matter with an unwavering determination to make it authentic and accurate.
Today, as a result of their dedication and perseverance, Phoenix Art Museum is the largest art museum providing access to visual arts and educational programs in the southwestern United States. And the Phippen Museum is inspired and honored by this collaborative opportunity to share these incredible pieces and bring attention to some of America’s most prestigious Western art. An Opening Reception and Member Preview for this special exhibition will be held on October 6th, 2017 at 5:30PM. Phippen and Phoenix Art Museum members with valid membership cards will be admitted free of charge and guests for $10 each.
The Phippen Museum is located only a few minutes north of downtown Prescott, Arizona, at 4701 Highway 89North. For additional information on this or any other event at the museum, please call (928)778-1385, or visit their website at www.phippenartmuseum.org.
