Celebrating Phoenix’s Legacy of Art
“The Gallery @ City Hall” is dedicated to displaying rotating exhibitions of art from the City's historic municipal Art Collection of approximately 1,000 portable works and highlighting exemplary projects commissioned by the award-winning Phoenix Public Art Program. Opened in May 2012 to celebrate Arizona's Centennial (click here for the
video), it offers Phoenix residents and visitors alike, a museum-like setting to view and enjoy the legacy of art that Phoenicians began building nearly a century ago in 1915.
The Gallery @ City Hall is supported by private contributions from businesses and residents throughout the city and region, and operated by volunteers. Admission is free and the gallery is open to the public.

Office of Arts and Culture Public Art Program and the Public Works Department’s
