Review for Heard Museum, Phoenix, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Heard Museum is a beautiful, unique institution which delights visitors to our community and continues to amaze those of us who live in Arizona. The Museum reflects the diversity of the American Indians and promotes modern artistic endeavors. It educates us and reveals relationships between "peoples" and between "The People" and the earth. It tell us stories of creation and stories of survival. The Heard Museum is a cultural feast.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

promoting the talent of young American Indian artists.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to buy adjoining land to the Museum so it may have slightly more space to operate events and, I hate to say it, park.

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

working with the staff of the Museum and other volunteers. It is like family.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

always working to make the Heard Museum better.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

improve it's endowment and bring continuity into the fiscal well being of the Heard Museum.

Ways to make it better...

more people in Phoenix appreciated what a gem the Heard Museum is and actively and continuously supported it.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

attracting younger visitors.
