Members’ Event: Canvas of Clay Exhibition Preview


On Friday, September 15 from 6-8 p.m. museum members are invited to a special gallery opening and exhibition preview for Canvas of Clay: Hopi Pottery Masterworks from The Allan and Judith Cooke Collection.

The exhibition includes approximately half of The Allan and Judith Cooke Collection, one of the finest private collections of Hopi pottery, which has been gifted to the museum. Ceramics from the collection will be permanently featured in a new museum gallery, The Allan and Judith Cooke Gallery. Sponsored by the City of Scottsdale, the gallery honors the donor and his late wife, and the Hopi people whose tribal land lies in northern Arizona. A national treasure, this collection serves as a point of pride for the City of Scottsdale and the state of Arizona.

Native appetizers and libations will be served. RSVPs are required; please make your reservation by Tuesday, September 5 by calling Visitor Services at 480-686-9539 ext. 200 or email cbellfy@scottsdalemuseumwest.org.
