Contemporary Forum, a support group of the Phoenix Art Museum, is pleased to announce their new annual fundraiser: the Contemporary Forum Art + Architecture Weekend. The first annual Art + Architecture Weekend will take place February 24-26, 2017, at several locations across the Valley. Participants will be invited to visit area homes with outstanding architectural components and contemporary art collections, as well as enjoy lectures by top Phoenician architects, a twilight tour of Taliesin West, and parties throughout the Valley.
“We are excited that Contemporary Forum support organization is reaching out to the architecture community through this event, as architecture and art go hand in hand. The progressive architecture community of Phoenix continues to elevate Phoenix in terms of modernity and style and Contemporary Forum is on the forefront of contemporary art collecting, so this is a perfect blending of the two areas.”
