Beauty Speaks for Us | Heard Museum

Beauty Speaks for Us

The Heard Museum’s new Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust Grand Gallery opens to the public on February 10, 2017.

The inaugural exhibition, Beauty Speaks for Us, will be a presentation of more than 200 rarely seen masterworks selected from private Phoenix collections and the Heard’s own collection of more than 40,000 works of art. This will be a true celebration of our community and a turning point for the museum as it will usher in a new era of excellence. Visitors will see timeless works of art that span generations and cultures in a wide variety of media: pottery, textiles, jewelry, beadwork, functional art, paintings, basketry and carvings.
