On December 4th the monthly First Friday Artwalk will be held in the Downtown Phoenix Art District. The Phoenix Art Museum has also selected that day to mark the beginning of their 50th anniversary celebrations. Their 50th Anniversary First Friday Party is open to the public and promises to be a multi sensory experience. Not only will the PAM be showcasing 50 new acquisitions from notable artists like Andy Warhol, Phillip C. Curtis, James Turrell, and more, they will also have live bands, DJ’s, as well as hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. The new artwork will eventually be distributed around the different galleries in the museum. Through January 3, 2010 they will be on display in the Steele Gallery. Come out and help the Phoenix Art Museum celebrate 50 years of cultural enrichment in The Valley of the Sun.
Everyone in the Valley is invited to celebrate Phoenix Art Museum’s Golden Anniversary at a free First Friday event, December 4, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Since 1959, the Museum has served as the cornerstone of Phoenix’s art and cultural community, providing the people of Arizona with great art from around the world and amazing cultural experiences. The 50th Anniversary party promises to be no exception offering a jam-packed evening full of engaging musical performances, live DJ sets, signature cocktails and access to all of the Museum’s galleries.
