Contemporary Forum, a support group of Phoenix Art Museum, is hosting its second annual Art + Architecture Weekend on April 13th, 14th and 15th, 2018. Offering a rare opportunity to step inside custom homes in the Valley, each with exceptional architecture and world-class contemporary art collections, the weekend celebrates this synergy with parties, dialogue, and two home tours.

The weekend kicks off at Phoenix Art Museum on Friday, April 13th with an opening reception in Palette Café from 6:00 - 7:00pm, followed by a lecture and tour conducted by Dennita Sewell, the Jacquie Dorrance Curator of Fashion Design. Dennita will discuss the current exhibition, Iris van Herpen: Transforming Fashion, presented by the Arizona Costume Institute, and co-sponsored by Contemporary Forum. Featuring 45 ensembles created from 2008-2015, the work is dynamic, innovative and pushes the boundaries of fashion design, with integral links to current architectural trends in parametric design.

The Platinum Home Tour on Saturday, April 14th includes an exclusive VIP home tour with approximately 80 guests touring four exceptional homes. All of the homes feature stunning architecture and incredible art collections. For the tour, you will be driven in a luxury van, with a private invitation only reception upon the tour's completion. Vans will arrive at the reception at approximately 4pm, with the reception between 4pm and 6pm.
