After spending last Saturday morning at the Phoenix Public Market, enjoying local arts and crafts in a farmers market setting, I was ready to stroll through cooler fare — so I headed to the Phoenix Art Museum with my college-age son, Christopher. They recently re-opened their PhxArtKids gallery, and I was eager to explore it.
I’ve been enjoying the Phoenix Art Museum with my children, sometimes as a school field trip chaperone, for more than a decade. Thanks to evolving interests and changing exhibits, it never gets old. In many ways, it’s like several museums in one. Sometimes I’m in the mood for European classics. Other days I’m drawn to contemporary works.
But I stop by the PhxArtKids gallery every time I’m there, and hope you’ll enjoy these photos from my most recent visit…
