This holiday season, support museum programs and exhibitions and find thoughtful, unique gifts for everyone on your list at the annual ASU Art Museum Store holiday sale. For the first time, the annual holiday sale will happen at two museum store locations – the ASU Art Museum Store and ASU Art Museum Store at the Brickyard.
All regularly priced merchandise at both museum store locations – including exhibition catalogs, art objects, toys and jewelry – is 20 percent off through Dec. 13. ASU Art Museum members receive an additional 10 percent off.
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 stationery 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). The store, which opened at the Brickyard location in early 2014, is excited to introduce new ceramic works by artists including Sunshine Cobb, Andrew Gilliatt, Meredith Host, Tom Jaszczak, Tammy Marinuzzi and Luba Sharapan. Shoppers will 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.
Both store locations are open during regular museum hours. To speak with a member of the museum store staff, call 480-965-9076.
