ASU Art Museum

51 E. 10th St. Tempe, AZ 85281 | Tempe | 480-965-2787

Location Description:

Nestled in the middle of a sprawling, desert-pink complex, ASU Art Museum was designed by Antoine Predock in 1989. The galleries of the museum are arranged in three levels, with the main floor underground. Predock intended for the space to be mysterious and for the layout to be a little tricky to navigate; this way, the experience of the museum is truly a process of discovery.
