Have you heard about Iconic Arizona? It's a new exhibit of creative photography at the Phoenix Art Museum, and it's going on now!
The exhibit runs from November 12, 2011 through March 4, 2012. As you might imagine, the exhibit features many of Arizona's most well-known attractions such as the Grand Canyon and the Painted Desert.
However, the exhibit has more to offer than just the natural wonders of Northern Arizona. There are photos of the San Xavier del Bac Mission, Jerome, and man-made attractions such as the Hoover Dam and Frank Lloyd Wright's Pauson House.
Images from 40 different photographers (including Ansel Adams) are on display in the Doris and John Norton Gallery for the Center for Creative Photography.
While you're there, you should also make time to see "The Bridge at Hoover Dam: Photographs by Jamey Stillings." This exhibit features dozens of awe-inspiring photos taken during the construction of the Pat Tillman Mike O'Callighan Memorial Bridge, also known as the Hoover Dam Bypass. This exhibit closes December 4th, 2011, so don't delay!
These incredible images are just a few of the many artistic pieces on display at the Phoenix Art Museum. The museum offers free admission one night per week and is also free of charge on the First Friday of every month. Regular rates aren't bad either, especially if you become a member.
