Built in 1919, the Shemer Art Center and Museum building was the first home built in Arcadia. It was built for the workers hired by investors to create the Arcadia community and home sites. When the depression hit in the 1920’s, the project came to a halt.
In order to preserve a bit of Phoenix history and to provide to the citizens of Phoenix an art education facility, longtime Phoenix resident Martha Shemer bought the property in 1984. What became the Shemer Art Center and Museum is available for public art education and enjoyment today.
A special free event is taking place October 12th, from 10am-3pm, where people will be able to bring their pets with them to see the Animal Other exhibit and participate in free interactive paw painting and t-shirt screen printing activities.
