ASU Art Museum Store Holiday Sale!


41756d47-5b39-4d8f-af91-cacaa9e80921

The ASU Art Museum Store Holiday Sale starts Saturday, Nov. 29 at both locations.

For the first time ever, this year’s holiday sale is happening at two museum store locations! Get 20% off all regularly priced merchandise — and museum members receive an additional 10% off. Not a member? Become one today.
The ASU Art Museum Store features a number of unique handmade items by local artists, ASU alumni and faculty — as well as jewelry and other accessories, works from nationally and internationally known artists, imaginative stationary and unusual stocking stuffers.

The ASU Art Museum Store at the Brickyard carries a large selection of ceramics available for purchase from nationally recognized potters (including ASU ceramic faculty). We’re excited to introduce new ceramic works by artists including Sunshine Cobb, Andrew Gilliatt, Meredith Host, Tom Jaszczak, Tammy Marinuzzi and Luba Sharapan. Find earthenware bowls and mugs with a pop of color, wheel-thrown porcelain plates with colorful patterns, soda-fired vases and more.

When you shop at the museum stores, you’re supporting museum programs — and shopping local! According to Local First Arizona, of which the museum is a member, when shoppers choose to spend their money locally, 73 percent remains in the local economy, compared to just 43 percent from non-local stores.

For more information about the ASU Art Museum stores, call 480.965.9076.
