One thing that makes Scottsdale real estate so popular is the city’s thriving arts scene. Scottsdale is well-known for its large collection of galleries that line Main Street and Marshall Way, as well as the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art and Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts. If you appreciate culture and fine art, there is also a hidden gem in North Scottsdale that you may have overlooked – the Heard Museum North.
Heard Museum North is tucked away just off of Scottsdale Road and is very easy to miss. For those who take the time to spot it and visit, however, it is a real treat. The museum boasts two exhibition galleries. The first is dedicated to the permanent exhibition of American Indian art and craftwork. It showcases the influence both tradition and cultural change have on art. The second gallery features new and changing exhibits. The current exhibition on display is American Indian Ledger Art, which will run until October 27th. Beginning November 23rd, the gallery will be showing “American Indian Fashion: From Lloyd Kiva New to Now.”
If you have not yet been to Heard Museum North, be sure to plan an afternoon outing at this wonderful treasure in Scottsdale. The museum also has a charming garden café, so you can enjoy a light lunch before or after browsing the galleries. Don’t forget to stop in at the shop as well.
Scottsdale is a great place to absorb the rich ancestral culture of the Valley, whether by visiting the Heard Museum North or simply by enjoying miles of beautifully preserved landscape.
