AAA Editor Notes
Shemer Art Center and Museum, 5005 E. Camelback Rd., is located in the first house built in the Arcadia neighborhood of Phoenix. Building began in 1919, and after two remodels, was completed in 1928. The restored Santa Fe Mission-style building with adobe walls contains changing exhibits of fine art by Arizona artists; seasonal classes and workshops also are available. A highlight is the outdoor sculpture garden set amidst a citrus orchard.
