The Heard Museum is proud to join several other Phoenix arts organizations in marking the 30th anniversary of the Phoenix Arts and Culture Commission at a special celebration Saturday, Oct. 3, downtown at the Herberger Theater, Phoenix Convention Center and along Monroe Street between Second and Third streets.

Find the Heard Museum’s table with hands-on art activity from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the plaza in front of the Herberger Theater, 222 E. Monroe St. Several other activities and artist demonstrations will also take place at those times at tables staffed by representatives of many area arts organizations.

Gail Browne, executive director of the Phoenix Arts and Culture Office, said in a city statement, “We are especially pleased to be celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Arts and Culture Commission at the beginning of Arts and Humanities Month (October).

Through our Oct. 3 festivities we want to invite our residents to celebrate and promote the arts while participating in the diverse cultural activities available in our city.”

Here’s a complete schedule of events and a timeline of the 30th anniversary celebration. The Heard extends grateful appreciation to the Phoenix Arts and Culture Commission for its many years of support of the museum.
