​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Gallery @ City Hall

The Gallery @ City Hall is Open Every Friday from 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. -- Holidays Excluded.

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 youtube 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. ​

 Current Exhibit

From Mine to Medallion

The exhibition celebrates one of the first Public Art projects, the Central Avenue Medallions. By highlighting the processes that turned raw copper from Arizona mines into the artist-designed medallions along Phoenix’s Central Avenue, the exhibition shows viewers how copper mining and production merged with art and design to create this landmark city project. Major exhibition components include displays showing where and how copper is mined in Arizona, and interpretive material describing the state’s rich history of mining. Also, in collaboration with the Arizona Mining Museum and the Cave Creek mineral Museum, several mineral examples, tools and other items related to copper mining are on view. The exhibition has been developed by Friends of Phoenix Public Art, in cooperation with the Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture, with support from FreePortMcMoran.
