Hidden Art Enclave Is 30


Arcadia is home to a well-known art education and community center. Shemer Art Center & Museum is set in the heart of our neighborhood and began life as the first home built in the area. Built to accommodate the foreman of the Arcadia Water Company in 1919, this Santa Fe-style home was later purchased by Martha Evvard Shemer and then donated to the City of Phoenix. Now known for its extensive art classes, exhibits, lectures, workshops and community events, the Shemer is an icon of the era and a reminder of the quaint community that we are lucky to call home. Open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, with extended hours on Thursday.
