Phoenix Rising: The Valley Collects brings together works from Arizona’s most significant private collections of American, Asian, Modern, Contemporary, European, Fashion Design, Latin American art and photography. These privately owned and rarely seen works will be on view at Phoenix Art Museum, many for the first time, in celebration of the achievements and passions of the Valley’s art enthusiasts.
The exhibition will include work from more than 20 private collections in Phoenix and the surrounding area. It presents a diverse and eclectic selection of the finest works produced, from the 19th century to the present, and features paintings, sculpture, video installation, works on paper, photography, and fashion design. Works from the abstract expressionist period will include never before seen works by Helen Frankenthaler, Morris Louis, Philip Guston, along with mid-century master Alexander Calder, among others.
The exhibition is organized by Phoenix Art Museum and is made possible through the generosity of PetSmart.
