First Fridays at the Heard Museum
On the first Friday evenings of the month (except March), the Heard will bring fun, food, drink and fresh events to the museum to share the cultural pulse of Phoenix and the Southwest today â€” with free general evening admission to the museumâ€™s galleries.* The CafĂ© and Cantina will be open for dining, drinks or snacks, and a cash bar is also available for both adult and family-friendly beverages. Donâ€™t forget to visit the Heard Museum Shop, the Collectorâ€™s Room and Books & More until 8 p.m.!
This First Friday we celebrate the opening of the new exhibition,Â Color Riot! How Color Changed Navajo Textiles.
Change has always been a hallmark of Navajo textile design, with the weaversâ€™ individualism to a greater or lesser degree a continuing theme. Today, Navajo textiles are viewed as art with the singular vision of the weaver appreciated and applauded just as the vision of an artist working in the Euro-American artistic tradition has always been recognized. Come experience this amazing show!
Guest Musician Randy Kemp will fill the Crossroads Gallery with music. Navajo weavers Velma and AshleeÂ Craig will be demonstrate their artistic talents. Music, weaving, and art is the theme ofÂ the evening. Museum admission is Free, so bring the family and enjoy all the museum has to offer this First Friday.
