A pleasant way to spend the day here in Phoenix, taking in some culture, is to visit the Phoenix Art Museum. From inside and outside the museum, there are plenty of opportunities to engage in different activities or view different exhibits - from movies, concerts, and lectures in its theater, to open gallery talks, art classes and society soirees in the courtyard. Museum visitors can also enjoy the interactive PhxArtKids gallery and vibrant photography exhibitions. Occasionally, the Phoenix Art Museum hosts special exhibitions or even luncheon events. Since moving to Arizona and visiting the Phoenix Art Museum, I've learned the permanent collection includes more than 17,000 works of American, Asian, European, Latin American, Western American art, and also my favorites:  Modern-Contemporary art and Fashion Design. The most recent Fashion Gallery installation is all about capes. The cape collection exhibit, curated by Dennita Sewell, is called Cape Crusade, and will be on exhibit until February 9, 2014.

One of my favorite cape displays of the exhibit - leopard of course...

The fashion exhibits usually incorporate archives of vintage fashion magazines...

Even the ladies lounge had beautifully photographed fashion displayed on the wall...

You never know when and where inspiration can strike: This was one of three headboards of painted maps...

Upcoming event in January 2014 at the phoenix Art Museum: The Fourth Annual Independent Women Luncheon, sponsored by My Sister's Closet, featuring Interior Designer Bunny Williams as the Guest Speaker. "Read My Pins" is an upcoming exhibit that caught my attention - It's The Madeleine Albright Collection, opening November 23.

 With the now beautiful fall weather, it's great to experience the Dorrance Sculpture Garden...
