Thanks to a recent $50-million addition and courtyard renovation, the Phoenix Art Museum has finally become a cultural institution representative of the fifth largest city in the country. The new multilevel wing was designed to house large-scale pieces and the museum's modern art collection. With an expanded sculpture garden and the old gallery space still in top-notch condition, this institution can take several hours to explore. The permanent collection includes 20 miniature rooms designed by American Narcissa Niblack Thorne, each built to 1:12 scale (one inch equals one foot in real life); works by Picasso and Albers; and a Latin American and western American collection that totals more than 1,000 works of art.
