I just got back from my first trip to the Phoenix Art Museum in over a year. I had a membership all last year and never went once, missing the Monet exibition, for one, and I am sure countless other shows. Naturally, when i was there today, they were between shows. The Annie Leibowitz exhibition,"Women", which was said to be outstanding, and which I had every intention of seeing, just ended, and they are preparing for the Cowboy Artists of America, which, although it sounds cheesy, is actually quite impressive usually. Anyway, I spent a couple of hours wandering around the permanent collection. Here are a few notable pieces on display. I was unable to get images of most of my favorites, but these are worthwhile, nonetheless:

There were two minor exhibits of note, one depicting the life of a painting by Joseph Santore the final piece was phenomenal! Every part of it was a superb abstract painting, whether it be the wall, the ceiling, or any square foot of canvas you might choose.

Another exhibit, by
Liliana Porter consisted of spectacular cibachromes of unusual toys, sometimes juxtaposed against real objects.
