Beyond Artworks

A Presentation and Conversation with Phoenix Art Museum docent Liz Smith about Artist Stories of Opportunity and Inspiration 

Tuesday, April 9 | 10-11:30 a.m.

Do you ever wonder how a piece of artwork came to be displayed in a museum? Join Docent Liz Smith as she unravels the hows and whys of some of Phoenix Art Museum’s most loved works of art. Travel back in history to the very first painting the Museum purchased and the story of how it all came about. Learn how circumstance and opportunity can be as critical to an artist as inspiration. You may never look at a piece of art in the same way without first wondering about its backstory.
