One of the reasons my wife and I picked Phoenix as a place to live was the Heard Museum and its gorgeous setting. With their great revrance for our native peoples culture and of course art, we knew we had a great museum to explore. We have never been disappointed, as members, art seekers, visitors of unique exhibits, listening to authors and other speakers and their outreach to the general community. Just a class organization.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

art, exhibits, autors, speakers, community gatherings, festivals, dance, music, beautiful setting. I've enjoyed it all
