Phoenix Art Museum enjoys a unique and vibrant collaboration with the Center for Creative Photography (CCP) at the University of Arizona presenting an exhibition program that features the CCP’s world-renowned collections of more than 80,000 works by 2,000 photographers. Regular rotating exhibitions in the Museum’s Norton Gallery feature such artists as Ansel Adams, Lola Alvarez Bravo, Richard Avedon, Louise Dahl-Wolfe, W. Eugene Smith, Edward Weston and more.
Phoenix Art Museum does not maintain a collection devoted specifically to photography yet individual photographic works may be found in the Contemporary and Latin American collections.
The Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMoCA), situated on a twenty-one acre, beautifully landscaped park in the middle of downtown Scottsdale, presents the best of contemporary art, architecture and design from around the world and from around the corner. Our nine to twelve exhibitions per year rotate continually so that a visitor will always experience the most current works of art that represent the thinking of the best and the brightest.
Recognized internationally as one of the finest collections in the world, the Center holds more than 90,000 works by 2,000 photographers. Our main strength is 20th century North American artists. We also hold significant collections of 19th and 20th century photography from around the world.
